Athena and her toy!

Athena our Giant Pacific Octopus was brought to us back in October. She adjusted pretty well to her new home and seemed to enjoy human company. Lately however, she has been more active. We thought she might be bored, so we started giving her toys to play with and food in jars so that she would have something to do. Below is a video of Athena playing with her toy ball trying to get the food out.
