Octopus Cannibalism Caught on Video for First Time

Related Links

When octopuses go hunting for prey, they sometimes end up “dining” on members of their own species, and the cephalopods seem to have a taste for their victims’ arm tips.

Divers have captured video of this octopus-on-octopus action in the wild for the first time on video.

In a new study, researchers described three cases of cannibalism in the common octopus — Octopus vulgaris — recorded with a camcorder by scuba divers in Ría de Vigo, Spain, located on the northeastern Atlantic coast. In two of the cases, the predators had started to eat the tips of the arms of their prey by the time the divers found them. [See Images of the Cannibalistic Octopus]

And, in one of the cases, the predator had access to more “traditional” prey in the form of mussels, but it still chose to feed on another, smaller octopus.

Although scientists had been aware of cannibalism occurrences among members of O. vulgaris, the previously reported cases were known only from analyses of stomach contents and laboratory observations, the researchers wrote in the study published Sept. 8 in the Journal of Comparative Psychology.

However, “this behavior has never been described from direct observations in the wild by scuba diving,” said study author Jorge Hernández-Urcera of the Institute of Marine Research (IIM) in Vigo, Spain.

The researchers documented the first of the three cannibalism cases on Dec. 11, 2012, at a depth of 40 feet (12 meters), on a rocky bottom off the Cíes Islands, which are part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia (NAPAIG). A male octopus weighing about 4.85 pounds (2.2 kilograms) was holding in its grasp a smaller octopus without visible sexual characteristics, which weighed a bit less than a pound (about 400 grams). [See Video of the Cannibalistic Octopus in Action]

“The animal was dead, showing a pale white color and the tips of its arms had been eaten,” the researchers wrote.

The second case was recorded July 13, 2013, on a sandy bottom about 60 feet (18 m) below the surface near the Estelas Islands. A male octopus of about the same weight as the in first case carried an octopus weighing a bit more than a pound (540 grams) inside a ball-shaped sack that it had formed with its arms and web – the skin between its arms that it can spread to capture prey.

The diver who recorded the case realized that “the prey was still alive, because it poked and moved one of its arms between the dorsal pair of arms of the predator,” the researchers wrote. The diver disturbed the predator, which in turn let go of the prey, letting it escape, and therefore the researchers classified this case as “an attempted predation.”

How To Establishment Koi Food and also Just what Regarding Old Meals?

Proper Food Storage space.

Sometimes you luck out and acquire a bargain on mass foods. Or, a supplier supplies larger containers compared to your fish can consume in a period. Regrettable. I do NOT advise that you buy large bags of meals unless your fish can consume all of it in a season. This is considering that it’s necessarily hard to keep 45 pounds of meals in the refrigerator. Certainly, if you CANISTER, do it! Or else, the fish meals sits in the bag in a “great dark place” and also weevils hatch out in it as well as the food is shed. Or moulds expand in it, on the condensation-side of the bag and also it’s shed. Or, the felines tear out the bottom corner of the bag as well as the food spreads across the floor of the garage like a cancer. Can you say to “I have actually existed, done that”??

Refrigerate meals, DO N’T freeze them. Cold damages (lyophilizes = fridge freezer burns) the fats in the meals and so the fat-soluble vitamins are compromised.

Foods which are packed in nitrogen (no oxygen) by the maker are better than food which is in containers with air. If you could find food which has a bag that permits expression of air from the bag and resealing, that is optimum.

Old Meals?

If food starts to smell “hilarious” or develops a fuzz on it, modifications colour, sticks together or crumbles down, it’s aged or “bad” as well as ought to be discarded. Feeding “bad” meals will certainly land you in a globe of pain with your fish, because much of whatever increases in fish meals creates exactly what are referred to as “Aflatoxins” which can create injury, insufficiency, and broken backs, in fish fed these spoiled meals. Truly, fish ought to go hungry while waiting for you to get fresh meals, rather than being fed spoiled meals “just for a few days” due to the fact that it matters.

So, we’ve talked about feeding, let’s talk nutrition. What’s in food and what does it do?

Just what Healthy protein is and also does

Protein is whatever your cells are made of. If it’s a cell, it is made of healthy protein. The most various cells that are constructed from, and also hence supply one of the most amino acid are muscular tissue cells. But one have to likewise remember that red blood cells as well as infection beating white blood cells are additionally made of amino acid. People fail to remember that these red as well as white cells have a finite life expectancy in the blood stream and should be remade. Exactly how does the fish change these cells in wintertime when it’s not eating? Very hard. This is one reason Springtime is commonly laden with illness.

Healthy protein is the “stuff” of muscular tissues and so is collected from animals in their muscular tissue. When we consume protein in the form of beef, well, you understand. Beef muscle. ‘Kay.

Studies have actually been done which contrasted the digestion and assimilation of amino acid in fish. They checked chicken protein, fish amino acid, plant amino acid, beef amino acid, pork, and so on. As well as you will certainly NOT be delighted to understand that fish healthy proteins were the BEST absorbed as well as took in. Fish eat fish. This makes good sense because the occurrence of fish jumping into shore and consuming cows is really, very reduced to non-existent. Fish are adjusted to the consumption of others in their food cycle. So fish amino acids are the very best for fish. Cool.

So when you consider a bag of meals and the initial substance is “Wheat”. Once more, you get the picture. Wheat is not equal to fish healthy protein. So keep looking. You ought to want fish or aquacultural healthy proteins as the first element in a good diet for your Koi and also Goldfish.

Fish could ABSORB corn. But they do not ASSIMILATE it in addition to fish healthy proteins, actually they could not absorb it IN ANY WAY if an amino acid is missing from the amino acid in the food. So companies which have stooped to talk glowingly about corn being “DIGESTABLE” while omitting reasonable portrayal of corn’s comparatively bad assimilation are being deceptive.

South Norwalk Task Force looks to brighten Norwalk; official finds many burned-out street lamps

NORWALK — Members of the South Norwalk Comeback Task Force plan to meet with representatives of South Norwalk Electric and Water (SNEW) to discuss the number of street lights out in SoNo.

With the exception of some fixtures along North Water Street, most of the pole-mounted street lamps are maintained by SNEW. The city has borne the cost of their installation, according to officials.

On Tuesday, Norwalk Redevelopment Agency Executive Director Timothy T. Sheehan gave task force members his assessment of streetscape lighting during a meeting of the panel at the South Norwalk Branch Library.

“On the traffic island fronting on the (Maritime) Aquarium, all of the front lights are out,” Sheehan said. “That’s pretty consistent as you’re walking throughout the entire neighborhood, so I think the first issue is that we need to work with SNEW on is getting the lights lit that we have, and then understanding what our level of need is relative to replacement.”

Dave Sigworth, spokesman for The Maritime Aquarium, said later Tuesday that Aquarium officials believe the traffic island where the light poles are located “is the city’s, and thus those lights are serviced by SNEW.”

John M. Hiscock, SNEW general manager, expressed doubt about the magnitude of burned-out street lamps as well as who bears responsibility for the lights at the front of The Maritime Aquarium.

“There are lights out here and there,” Hiscock said. “I believe (the Aquarium lights) are not SNEW lights — they’re sort of a whiter light. I assume they’re parks and rec(reation), or The Maritime Aquarium. No one has approached us formally, but it’s my understanding those are not our lights.”

Hiscock attributed the outage of roughly a half-dozen street lamps on the north side of Washington Street to construction work related to The SoNo Pearl at 99 Washington St. He said the lights were restored with the cooperation of the contractor.

Improving street lighting is among the issues the task force has discussed since its formation by Mayor Harry W. Rilling last December.

Task force members hope to provide brighter lighting and lower the electric bill for pole-mounted street lights on SoNo arteries such as Ann, Monroe, Marshall, Washington and North and South Water streets.

As part of that discussion, they have considered replacing standard street lights with light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures, which emit a brighter, whitish light and use less power.

Sheehan told task force members Tuesday, however, that a lighting consultant engaged by the Redevelopment Agency determined that moving to LED light fixtures would prove costly.

“There was a recognition that there is significant cost savings that ultimately would result from the LED lights,” Sheehan said. “But the issue with that, again, is that there is a very, very significant upfront cost that would have to be borne in doing the transfer over. The initial estimate, I believe, was $1,500 a light.”

Sheehan said replacement of the lighting would require replacing not only the lamps, but also the wiring and fixtures. He said the city might wish, as an intermediate step, to replace individual street lamps with metal-halide lamps, which produce a brighter light but cost less money to install than LED fixtures.

Hiscock said SNEW would not object to installation of new lighting in SoNo. He noted that the city and SNEW worked together to incorporate LED lighting as part of the Cedar Street improvement project.

“We’re certainly willing to meet with anyone who wants to discuss the lighting situation in detail,” Hiscock said.

How to acquire healthy and balanced fish

Initially, you must seek energetic, interested fish. The water in the holding storage tank must be rolling around and the water’s area need to be active. This is ideal for gas exchange and also results in healthier animals. The fish should be cruising here the water’s area as well as going after each other around. Don’t buy fish which are lethargically hovering in the water.

The fish ought to have a torpedo molded body as well as by all implies the fish ought to be “fat-looking”. Possibly you don’t know what “fat-looking” implies. This means the abdominal areas or waistline need to be as large as the head. There should be a smooth shape from the head thorugh the gills and also into the physical body. If the belly of the fish is “squeezed” you must not buy the fish. Lame reasons like: “They have been fasted as well as haven’t resumed eating yet” might be provided as a description. The smarter relocate need to be to ask that the seller ought to give you a phone call when the fish are consuming again, as well as all set available.

The fish must consume when fed. If they don’t eat, don’t buy them. If the retailer offers the lame justification that they were simply fed, prepare a return travel later on to view if their appetite has returned. In case you didn’t understand, healthy Koi in excellent water will constantly eat up until they look a little like a fat ol’ tadpole.

Check out the fish you would like to buy for indicators of “excessive” slime happening in spots on the physical body, or harm to the fins which would certainly induce them to look like they were eaten away. Of wonderful value is also to discover the fishes’ nose, which must NOT have a red mark on it. It commonly takes place in retail containers that the fish will “snub” their noses on the sides of the storage tanks. Unless you really want a “job” with the strong potential for failure you must deny infected fish such as those described in this paragraph. Once again, you could inform the retailer in good faith that you have an interest in a particular fish yet you will not assume the libaility till the fish is “entire” once more. I indicate actually, if the fish “is just fine” as numerous retailers are quick to assure you, exactly what’s the problem with hanging around a couple of days for it’s sores to vanish just before closing the sale?

Any condition or disorder you might note with one fish will likewise be brought by all the others in the team. I made this blunder constantly when I was a kid. I would certainly see some lovely fish as well as drop totally in love with it. Yet there ‘d be this other fish in the container with it that had a rotten mouth or a torn fin. So I would certainly rationalize that the fish I wished to acquire is “fine” and had no signs and symptom. The problem is that the same virus, problems and also most notably; the scenarios that caused the ailment in the affected fish had actually additionally affected the future wellness of the various other preferred fish in the system.

Lastly, you must seek potential new fish which have taut, set up fins. The dorsal fin (it’s the fin that sticks up from the fishes’ back) must be snugly elevated. The tail must be totally spread, not clamped down. Kindly don’t buy a fish which gettings clamped fins. These fish are incubators of bloodsucking and bacterial conditions.

Aquarium's rocking to the tune of £11000

A PLYMOUTH restaurateur has donated £11,000 to the National Marine Aquarium – and says it’s all thanks to his customers.

Mitch Tonks, who owns the seafood restaurant next door to the tourist attraction, recently made the headlines when he opened his doors to a group of disadvantaged children and fed them for free.

But the restaurant’s kindhearted ethos doesn’t stop there.

Back in April, Rockfish added a £1 voluntary donation to customers’ bills with all contributions going to the Aquarium.

Mr Tonks handed over the hefty cheque to the Aquarium earlier this month – with the money being used to support the charity in its aims to promote understanding of the sea through education, conservation and research.

Rockfish serves up a wide range of seafood, most of which is sustainably sourced and certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), with much coming straight from local fishermen.

Dr David Gibson, managing director at the National Marine Aquarium, said: “We were thrilled when the restaurant chose to support the Aquarium earlier this year with this scheme, and to now receive a donation of £11,000 is truly brilliant.

“We share many of Rockfish’s values when it comes to helping preserve the marine environment, sourcing only the best sustainable seafood and keep fish stocks at healthy levels, so it is fantastic that the customer donations will be used to support our marine conservation projects to help us achieve our aims.”

Mr Tonks added: “We’re already big supporters of the Fishermen’s Mission charity and the work they do but wanted to work closely with a charity in Plymouth, and we love the work that the National Marine Aquarium is doing.

“With its focus on sustainability and conservation it seemed to be the perfect fit.

“The £1 is optional for diners and we can’t believe how generous our guests have been about this so it is thanks to them that we can make this donation”.

Something fishy?: Police hunt thief who netted £1k of koi carp from Talke garden

Comments (4)

A FAMILY has been left distraught after a thief broke into their garden to steal more than £1,000 worth of koi carp.

Kathryn Aynsley believes the offender crawled under a fence panel in the middle of the night to get to the ornamental pond.

The 26-year-old mum, of Talke, thinks they are deliberately being targeted after a similar break-in at their Swan Close home three months ago although on that occasion nothing was taken.

Among the prize fish pinched in the latest incident was a 10-year-old changoi koi which is worth £1,000 on its own.

Kathryn, who lives with her parents, said: “My parents let the dog out at about 10pm and then sometime during the night whoever it was wedged the fence panel up and crawled underneath.

“A lot of the plants had been stood on and there was water all along the decking, it was drenched.

“It happened before three months ago but they didn’t manage to steal anything.”

The theft took place in the early hours of yesterday.

Two other fish were taken including a 15-year-old blonde ghost Koi and a large 20-year-old golden Orfe worth about £30.

Kathryn added: “My dad invested in the chagoi because it’s quite a rare colour.

“It was over 12 inches long and is quite friendly. He recognises people as a source of food. The blonde ghost Koi was not as expensive but because of how big he had got, it would have been a lot to sell on.

“We have had a pond since I was little. We started with a goldfish pond and then started to buy more expensive fish. We buy them little for about £20 to £50 and then the bigger they get the more expensive they are.”

The family have spent a lot of time and money making sure their fish are kept in the correct environment with a special filter system and UV lights.

They have already increased security in the hope of deterring thieves in the future.

Kathryn added: “There are about 10 fish in the pond but the thieves took the most valuable ones. They must have known what they were doing.

“It has been quite stressful because now we are worried they will return. If we make the garden even more secure they will probably just find another way in. My mum was upset and my dad was fuming. He’s very passionate about his fish. The chagoi was my 14-month-old’s favourite fish because it used to suck his finger.”

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: “We received a call just before 7am on Tuesday reporting theft of three koi carp from a pond.

“Offenders got into the back garden between 11pm on Monday night and 6am. Patrols have attended and spoken to the owners.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 63 of September 9.
