    Monterey Bay Aquarium, so I've had the "behind the scenes" tour.  They keep their octopuses in their tanks by lining the edges with that fake grass/carpet stuff.  Apparently the smart buggers hate the feel of that stuff, so they won't travel across it.

    It was the only way they found to keep the boy out of the girl's tank next door! ;-)

    PS - I got to feed the male ... a very cool, albeit somewhat uncomfortable, feeling to have it's suckers attached to my arm and hand.  Something I'll definitely remember.
