Meet Inky: Octopus, 'Curious Boy' And Aquarium Escapee
According to the aquarium's manager, Inky's tank was left "slightly ajar, just slightly."By Katie Link | April 13, 2016
This is Inky the octopus. Though we’re thinking his new nickname should be Houdini.
Under the darkness of night, Inky broke out of his tank at New Zealand’s National Aquarium. He slid down a 6-inch-wide drain pipe and escaped to the Pacific Ocean, leaving a trail of suction cup marks in his wake.
"On this particular day, maintenance would’ve been carried out, and the lid had been left just slightly ajar, just slightly," aquarium manager Rob Yarrall told Radio New Zealand.
