Heard of the Spanish phrase ‘I feel like an octopus in a garage’? (to others ‘a fish out of water’). Well, at the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo there’s an octopus in a mall, thanks to the arrival of the new Giant Pacific octopus. Having no bones, these aquatic creatures can slip into tight crevices, and hide from predators by changing skin colour and texture using their specialised skin cells. Let’s hope it doesn’t find its way into any changing rooms! Log on to www.thedubaiaquarium.com or call 04 448 5200.
