Everybody loves an amazing prison break story. They imbue a feeling of hope with some daring journey.
Recently, a new story of derring do in New Zealand of a real life jail escape might be put into this pantheon of greats: An octopus it is now away from home within the Pacific Ocean and has outwitted its human captors. Thinking about the dimension of the ocean that was stated, it is very much impossible that he’ll ever be recaptured.
The National Aquarium within the coastal negotiation of Napier was once a shelter to Inky the octopus, as documented by BBC News, but it’s no longer it’s home today. This certain crafty and marine fellow guy was able to squeeze a little space in his housing before slipping over the ground searching for a getaway path out after some routine maintenance work.
He managed to make his way to one of the drain holes that go back to the ocean and off he went. He didn’t even leave us a message,” described aquarium manager Rob Yarrall.
The staff were shocked to arrive at the scene to find no Inky and a trail of octopus tracks left behind by the former captive.
Unfortunately, Inky left out his container-partner, another octopus, that the team state they’ll be checking exceptionally carefully from now on, to any extent further.
