OctoNews

Watch for news about our newest resident octopus.

Meet Velma, our latest OctoCam star, who replaces Captain Stubs (who proved to be a little shy and was returned to our animal husbandry area). Velma was generously donated by our neighbors at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

Previous Octopuses:

We generally keep our octopuses for only a matter of months before we release them back into the wild, usually when they begin to show signs of senescence

Raven was released on March 18, 2014.

Please note: The Octocams are occasionally taken down for maintenance and repairs. If you find the video unavailable, please try again later.
