The VERY Friendly GPO
We love any opportunity to talk about local marine animals, especially the fan-favourite Giant Pacific Octopus! In the CTV News video below, you can watch clips of the viral video of an octopus giving diver Andrea Humphreys a hug in Campbell River waters. Our aquarium manager and curator Ricky discusses octopus behaviour with the reporter, giving insight to this rarely seen act!
