I’ve never wanted to own a sea creature as a pet before, but this octopus seems very, very naughty: “A octopus has caused havoc in his aquarium by performing juggling tricks using his fellow occupants, smashing rocks against the glass and turning off the power by shortcircuiting a lamp.” And I do have a soft spot for naughty animals.
Not to worry, I don’t plan to take on an octopus anytime soon. However, after I rebuild my barn this spring, I’m going to get chickens and maybe a pig. They won’t be pets, however. They’ll be sources of food.
