Inky the Great Escape Artist
Like a scene out of Finding Nemo or something attempted by the Great Houdini, Inky the octopus made his escape from an aquarium in New Zealand recently and everyone delighted in the story of his escape.
Check out this interview with an octopus expert who explains the nature of these amazing and intelligent creatures and why Inky’s escape wasn’t surprising:
The interview above reveals that octopuses, like all sentient beings, have personalities all their own, just like your pet dog or cat, or in fact cows, pigs, chickens, sheep, deer, etc., all deserving of ethical consideration.
I couldn’t help but think of Jimi Hendrix, who would relate to the force that drove Inky’s escape to freedom. 😀
