This pic is from one of our field trips a while back and got me laughing so much the mask leaked.
I thought you cephalopod keepers may enjoy this pic of an ocy using shells as a defence that look like a bra.

After a lot of years of diving and collecting you should see some of the actions I have seen that ocys carry out.
I had an ocy over a metre tall just in its body and not legs facing me down and coming at me on one of our trips two years back,eerrr.i swam away,lol.
There would have been no way I could have gotten it off my head if it went for me.
I have had two attack me over these 40+ years of diving and it gets ugly when they are serious!

And this is it as a pet eating a pep I that I fed it.

The bra wearing octopus explains us nowadays... that one octopus is actually wearing a bra.. and all the others are crawling around without one... just like us!:lolspin:
