True fact: the octopus is popular! We had a great time working with Ze Frank when he created his video, “True Facts About the Octopus”. In the three months since its debut, it has rocketed up the charts: more than 4 million views and climbing! 

Soon it will pass “True Facts About the Mantis Shrimp" (featuring another colorful character you’ll find in our exhibit galleries). After that? The tarsir, then sloths. Watch out, Sad Cat Diary: The Octopus is on its way!  

True Facts About the Octopus

Ze Frank has done it again! His latest True Facts video offers his unique take on amazing octopuses — including giant Pacific octopus that he and his crew filmed on location here at the Aquarium. The video incorporates spectacular deep-sea octopus footage from our colleagues at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, too.

Whet your appetite for more? You can see these incredible animals in person starting April 12 when we open Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid and Cuttlefishes.
