Until recently, the New Zealand National Aquarium had an octopus named Inky. Now, aquarium staff have announced that they believe that Inky made it back home to the ocean in a jailbreak worthy of a Steve McQueen movie, several months ago.
Inky arrived at the Aquarium in 2014, looking a little worse for the wear. He was picked up by an Aquarium volunteer from a cray pot near Pania reef.
“It seemed like a good name, a reflection of one of his protective mechanisms, squirting ink when he feels he’s in danger,” said Gerry Townsend, a Napier New Zealand resident who won the naming contest.
