The Seattle Aquarium had multiple giant Pacific octopi on exhibit the weekend we visited (as part of Octopus Week, of course). They live here in Puget Sound, so the aquarium can trap them, mate them, keep them for a while and release them directly back to the sound. They were getting fed by the staff while we were there and exploring around their tanks quite a lot. I'd never seen this creature so close up before and so active, it was really awesome.
