Giant Octopus Was Caught on Video Trying to Escape His Glass Display Tank at the Seattle Aquarium


Giant Octopus
Seattle, Washington - A giant octopus was caught on video trying to escape his large glass display tank at the Seattle Aquarium. As he was reaching several tentacles over its open top, an employee pushes him back in.

Aquarium officials say the octopus, named Ink, was not attempting to escape, but learning to explore his new home.

Once back inside the top was fastened to keep him inside.

Ink is one of two new giant Pacific octopuses on display at the aquarium.

Another octopus is being kept in separate tank at the aquarium because the species is solitary by nature. They have a shore lifespan of usually 3 - 4 year.

Next year, Ink will be released back into the wild as part of an ongoing education and conservation program for the species.
