One of Santa Monica Pier Aquarium’s resident octopi played a prank that left the building’s offices all wet. The female, two-spotted octopus with a reputation for being curious and gregarious overflowed her tank with the pull of a valve. While no animals were harmed in the incident, the newly designed floors might be damaged by the hundreds of gallons of water.
A similar prank was pulled last summer by an octopus at the Seattle Aquarium. Dolores Umbridge would soak the staff by blowing water jets on them when they’d come by to feed her or clean her tank.
