I'm more impressed with the fact that there is an Octopus in Canada? Is that normal?

Look to the right Chucky on the link it happened at a Canadian fish farm..I'm pretty sure they aren't native to there Matter of fact I remember watching a show on Animal Planet I think about octopus farms

Ah,got it. I wasn't sure. I also wasn't sure what would be swimming in a Canadian fish farm. An Octopus would have been my last guess smile

For sure M8 I don't associate octopus with Canada..From what I remember from the fish farm show they were testing every kind of sea life

There are octopus up here...just hard to find . The variety of sea life actually increases in cold water because of the higher oxygen density

Canada has 2 of the world's largest octopods: the Pacific Octopus dofleini, a slow but typical benthic (bottom-dwelling) hunter that may exceed 80 kg; and the Atlantic Alloposus mollis, which floats in the plankton like a 40 kg jellyfish.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Where the ocean meets the sky
Octopusses are everywhere, from warm to cold waters. I take it the eagle was trying to fish and was in for a nasty surprise. It can be happy to have escaped thanks to human help. Even a "small" octopus has much more power in its muscles than a human, and it sure knows how to use them. I bet the eagle has some broken ribs at least.
Squids and octopuses are strange creatures but i like them, also studied them a bit. Thanks for the link.
