Das Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport hat seinem Octopus Tank eine Webcam verpasst und jetzt kann man 24 Stunden am Tag Octopussys Garden beobachten. Ich bin sowas von süchtig.

An icon and celebrity of the central Oregon coast – albeit a rather slimy, freaky one – is now a bit more famous as it shows up live on a computer near you.

Everyone who’s ever been to the Hatfield remembers him. And now they can check him out 24 hours a day.

The Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport just opened its octopus tank to the world by streaming live video of their giant Pacific Octopus – seen at http://hmsc.oregonstate.edu/visitor/octocam

There are two web cams being utilized: one is outside the tank and slightly above, and the other inside. Their famed resident cephalopod can be seen interacting with tank mates and visitors to the center peering in. The funky feature skirts in and out of various nooks and crannies in the tank, sometimes disappearing out of view of the camera for a time. There is an addictive quality to this, as you see this remarkable creature curl up into strange shapes and wander around his habitat. You definitely wonder what’s on his mind.
