Octopus Goes On Rampage At Aquarium
A classic animal tale: Otto the Octopus who is held prisoner at the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany was caught causing a riot in his tank. Apparently, he was getting pissed off with the bright light shining into his tank and had worked out how to shoot a jet of water at the lights, causing them to short-circuit!
Not only that, but Otto was caught doing other violent acts: according to the Director of the aquarium, Elfriede Kummer,"Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it. And from time to time he completely re-arranges his tank to make it suit his own taste better - much to the distress of his fellow tank inhabitants."
Good on him I say, you obviously never designed his tank well enough, you muppets! Get a pro aquascaper like me in there and I'll chill Otto out in a jiffy....
