Octopus Floods Santa Monica Pier Aquarium
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
The aquarium at California's Santa Monica Pier is used to lots of sea water, just not all over the floor. Aquarium staff arrived at work earlier this week to find hundreds of gallons of water flooding their offices. The culprit? The aquarium's two-spotted octopus. She's known to be gregarious and curious and evidently she's agile. Staff believe the tiny octopus pulled open a control valve, allowing the water to overflow her tank.
