    Octo-Mess: 8-legged Resident Floods SoCal Aquarium

    February 26, 2009

    SANTA MONICA -- An octopus pulled open a valve in its tank at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium and flooded the facility with hundreds of gallons of sea water.

    Staff arrived at work Tuesday morning to find their offices soaked.

    They quickly traced the problem to the aquarium's resident two-spotted octopus, a tiny female known for being curious and gregarious with visitors.

    The octopus apparently tugged on a valve and that allowed water to overflow its tank.

    Aquarium spokeswoman Randi Parent says no sea life was harmed by the flood, but the brand new, ecologically designed floors might be damaged by the water.

    Alice you have such a charming, random way of expressing yourself! I luvz it. Whatchoo got against octopusses anyway, one of them do something to you? I'm fascinated by them, I always stare for the longest time at their evil little octopus faces and all those suckers on their tentacles. They're pretty tasty too!

    They would be pretty terrifying to encounter in the sea, I've never thought about that. I never go in that far, just neck-deep! You should try eating them as revenge!

    When I read the words "Octo-Mess" at first I thought this was about the octuplets.
