Octopus and Squid
M-1050 DWARF OCTOPUS, Octopus joubini
It is a small octopus (perfect for small to medium aquaria) that inhabits empty mollusk shells, beer cans and bottles. It uses bits of gravel or shell as an operculum to close off the opening. Females brood elongated, amber eggs in the shell; and fully developed young octopuses may hatch out, ready to feed on minute crustaceans. Octopuses are considered to be the most intelligent of invertebrates. At night they steal out of their shells and pounce on fiddler crabs, or small hermits. Size: 5-7 cm. Females with eggs available March through June. Otherwise, available year round.
