Spotlight: Giant Pacific Octopus
The Giant Pacific octopus is the largest octopus species known,
reaching a weight of 150 pounds or more! This boneless
invertebrate can move its body to open jars and even navigate any
openings it can fit its beak through. With a highly developed
brain and excellent vision, the octopus can use its body to solve
puzzles and has been known to escape from sticky situations, so
Check out this master of camouflage in our Main Gallery and
be sure to turn your camera flash off when snapping a photo!
Choose a green holiday! When
deciding on a tree to decorate, consider purchasing a live tree
which you can plant at the end of the holiday season. If each of
the 10 million trees that end up in landfills at the end of the
season were planted, over 480 million pounds of carbon dioxide
would be removed from the atmosphere every year.
