Octopus Predicting the Election

Octopus Predicting the Election

With the election just around the corner we thought we would ask our resident psychic octopus, Bob, to have a look at the Prime Ministerial candidates and let us know who he would predict to win.

 

After having a good look at both, and we all know octopus have very good eyesight, he swam on down and with his tentacle pulled Tony Abbott into himself and would not let go!

 

Amy Wilkes, Aquarist at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, who loves working closely with our octopus, explained to us that even though they have great eyesight, they can’t see colour. The octopus have sensitive receptors in their legs, which along with their great eyesight can help them locate their food through taste. Can you imagine being able to taste with your arms and legs?! 

 

Octopus are very intelligent animals and enjoy stimuli

The aquarists enjoy coming up with new ideas to entertain young Bob. So if you're looking for something different to do in Sydney, come down to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium this weekend to check out our octopus exhibit just opposite our adorable Little Penguins and see how many toys you can find in his tank.

 

Oh and if he was right - make sure you congratulate him on being so clever...
