It's been a long time, way too long a time, since I've posted an MLS diary. But PBS ran an episode on animal intelligence, and they asked me and Ruby the octopus to star in it. So, I thought I'd share.
Ruby was a common Atlantic octopus. This species has a life span of only a year, so he hasn't been with us since June of 2010. His legacy lives on in this episode of NOVA. I've had thirteen octopuses in last fifteen years, and Ruby was something special.
