    NZ - Jail break! Inky the octopus says the hell with it, escapes tank

    Guardian:

    The great escape: Inky the octopus legs it to freedom from aquarium

    Staff believe the common New Zealand octopus fled its enclosure when
    lid was left ajar and headed to freedom down a pipe that leads to the sea

    New Zealand Herald:

    Inky 'the great escape' Octopus global star

    My favorite sea creature is the octopus. They are very intelligent and fascinating! Way to go Inky!
    ...and be sure your sin will find you out.

    This album would have been even better with Inky producing.

    Thanks for sharing it is amazing to think of how he managed this it doesn't seem logical that he could fit down a pipe that size. I didn't realise how intelligent they were.

    Is it wrong that I smile every time this thread gets bumped and shows up on the main, front page??

    I didnt realize how intelligent octopi (is that correct?) were either. Fascinating really!

    Regrettably, there are no news updates, Inky apparently having opted for "me time" away from the social swirl.
