The octopus that takes pictures

At Kelly Tarlton’s, an aquarium in Auckland, there is an octopus that is unique.  With training from an animal trainer and a specially modified camera, this eight legged creature of the deep can take photos with his tentacles.  For a $2 charge, guests to the underwater zoo can get their picture taken by Rambo the octopus.  Money raised goes towards the SEA LIFE conservation fund.   This trick shows people just how intelligent octopuses are and hopefully they learn something new about them.  Rambo is enjoying exploring his arty side.
