    Holy Crap! Look at the size of that finger! That finger is frikkin’ huge!

    Um, this may be a dumb question, as I know so little about cephalopods… are there any species that can go in a fresh water aquarium? Because this is about the cutest little critter I’ve seen in ages.

    @eileencano – I’ve never heard of a fresh water octopus, or squid or cuttlefish, either. However, I have seen home-sized salt water tanks with octopi. And, of course, the big ones at aquariums.

    As followers of Romney feared, when Obama was elected, dire events unfolded.

    The dead god Cthulhu has woken from his dreams and risen from dark cold R’lyeh. He will seek out and destroy those who have mocked his followers. Feminists, liberals, environmentalists, civil rights activists, A+ atheists and all those vile mortals who promote and practice altruism!

    And PZ? The heretic PZ must be the first to be destroyed! Mighty Cthulhu will now eat him!

    NOM NOM NOM FEAR ME NOM NOM NOM… um…

    This could take a while.

    Brain the Octopus: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky: TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.”

    As Gregory said, cephalopods are saltwater critters. And they are, by just about all accounts that I’ve seen, rather difficult to keep in an aquarium. (Actually, that’s just one of the problems raising them, keeping them in the aquarium. They’re renowned escape artists.) Plus, most species are rather short-lived (AFAIK) even with the best care. And that really sucks with a creature with so much personality that you’re sure to become really attached to.

    Anyway, keeping and even breeding various cephs has been done, but they’re definitely for the advanced aquarist. For more info try http://www.tonmo.com or http://www.reefcentral.com

    {There is a loud crackling sound as theophontes has an epiphany: “What if cephalopods really are cuter than cats *interobang*” … moments pass … “But this is what my Feline Oberlawds warned me about, … must resist … must not forsake Them…” Starts clouting self with laptop as a distraction.}
