Otto the Octopus Wreaks Havoc

Staff believe that the octopus called Otto had been annoyed by the bright light shining into his aquarium and had discovered he could extinguish it by climbing onto the rim of his tank and squirting a jet of water in its direction.

"We knew that he was bored as the aquarium is closed for winter, and at two feet, seven inches Otto had discovered he was big enough to swing onto the edge of his tank and shoot out a the 2000 Watt spot light above him with a carefully directed jet of water."

"Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it. And from time to time he completely re-arranges his tank to make it suit his own taste better - much to the distress of his fellow tank inhabitants."
Just because of Otto, I am taking tako off the menu. Well, due to Otto and because octopus meat is completely tasteless and really really chewy. Seriously, you could replace it with a dog's rubber octopus chew toy and no one would know the difference. But if anyone asks, I am going to say it has to do with the intelligence and personality of octopi.
