Octopus loves his Mr. Potato Head

150_octopusLouis the octopus has a favorite toy -a Mr. Potato Head! Louis is an 18-month-old giant Pacific octopus at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium in Cornwall, England.
"We wanted an octopus-friendly toy which had a compartment to hide food in," said the aquarium's Matt Slater.

He says Louis gets very excited when sees the toy, which he plays with for an hour at a time.

"Its bright colours, strange shape and moveable parts make it fascinating for Louis," said Mr Slater.

The giant Pacific octopus is the largest octopus species, with a world record length of 33 feet. Young Louis is about six feet long, stretched out. Link -via Reddit
