Blue ring octopus.
Very dangerous!!!
Neuro toxin injected from its beak that you do not feel at all, will shut down entire cardio vascular and respiratory systems and if CPR can be performed successfully for quite a long time, the toxin passes through and a complete recovery is possible.

Octopus viliensis,big headed octopus.
Harmless and for some reason these ones wonít bite.
Very common yet very little is known about them.
We have kept them and they are picked on and predated on by other fish in the aquarium.
They eat anything and like cool waters, keep a strong lid on the aquarium and they make a great pet.
