    'Inky' the Octopus Escapes from New Zealand Aquarium

    An octopus the size of a rugby ball made an audacious escape through a narrow pipe at New Zealand’s National Aquarium, reports said, with the “great escape artist” returning to the ocean.

    “Inky” the male octopus, given to the Napier aquarium two years ago after being rescued from a crayfish pot, made a dash for freedom by slipping through a small gap in his enclosure, sliding across a wet floor and squeezing through a 150-millimeter-diameter (5.9 inches) pipe, Fairfax New Zealand reported Tuesday.

    Reminds me of The Shawshank Redemption.

    Those animals are crazy smart, and expert escape artists.

    Maybe they should have gotten him a girlfriend, so he would want to stick around
