Food for Thought: All About Octopuses with Jack Dubinsky
All About Octopuses: Context on the Biology, Ecology, Behavior, and Fisheries of These Mysterious Mollusks
Octopuses are complicated and largely misunderstood creatures with their strong gelatinous bodies, color-changing skin, decentralized intelligence system, and keen problem-solving skills. In this talk, Dubinsky will discuss the unique biology of octopuses, with a focus on examining some of the common myths about these peculiar cephalopods. He will also share some of his favorite stories from raising Cthulhu, the Maria Mitchell Association’s mischievous octopus.
