OCTO-SHOP­PING

Friday - - The Leisure Charts -

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.
