A lot of publicity internationally about Inky the octopus who apparently escaped over the top of a tank and crawled through a drainpipe to the sea from Te Papa. Have a look at the story below, even though it feature the dreaded Mike Hosking, and judge for yourself whether it actually happened.

There's a useful aspect of octopuses skills (not octopi because the word comes from Greek not Latin) they can open child proof pill bottles. Maybe not worth keeping one for but people with arthritis might find other uses.
