Inky the Octopus escapes from New Zealand Aquarium


NEW ZEALAND (WCMH) —  Inky the octopus found a weak spot in his tank and used it to his advantage as he escaped the New Zealand Aquarium.

According to CNN, Inky squeezed between a gap at the top of his tank, crawled across the floor, down a seawater runoff pipe and to freedom.

“Octopus are very intelligent, very inquisitive and like to push the boundaries,” said Rob Yarrell, the manager of the National Aquarium of New Zealand.

According to Yarrell, there will be no intensive search for Inky, who is more than likely back in his natural habitat.

“While he was with us, he would have learned a lot,” Yarrell told CNN. “He was the type that was inquisitive, and a bit wiser than we thought.”What others are clicking on:
