“Inky” the male octopus, given to the Napier aquarium two years ago, made a dash for freedom by slipping through a small gap in his enclosure, sliding across a wet floor and squeezing through a 150-millimetre-diameter (5.9 inches) pipe.
Aquarium manager Rob Yarrell said, “Giving him just a little gap was enough for him to get out and we noticed the wet trail to one of our drains.”
