The Octopus Who Loves His Mr Potato Head

Louis the octopus hanging on to a potato headLouis, a 1.8m-wide (6ft) octopus, is so attached to Mr Potato Head that he turns aggressive when aquarium staff tries to remove it from his tank.

The giant Pacific octopus was given the toy for Christmas and has even learned to dig out food hidden in a secret box at the back of it.

'He's fascinated by it,' said Matt Slater, of the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Cornwall. 'He attacks the net we use to fish the toy out every time we try to take it away.'

Mr Slater added: 'Octopuses are very intelligent and they like to be stimulated and busy.'
