Giant Octopus Released Back Into the Wild

Velma the Pacific Giant Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) was returned back into the wild today. The Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, OR, typically keep their octopuses 6-9 months and release them once they outgrow their tank or show signs of getting ready to reproduce. For their specimens they depend on donations from local crabbers and fishers who accidentally catch them in their pots and nets. They’re currently on the lookout for their next resident octopus.

シマドジョウです。このコ、ヒドジョウより先にうちにお迎えしたのですが、今現在ヒドジョウの2分の1の大きさです。6cmくらいで成長が止まってしまいました。普通シマドジョウは12~14cmになるといいます。何でだろう?病気なのかな?

とにかく一番の働き者であることは確かです。潜ってる姿がキュートでしょ?      (꒪ัo꒪ั)  un?
