No Mother Could Give More
British Columbia is known as the home of the world’s largest octopus, the giant Pacific octopus. Come and hear Jim Cosgrove, a retired Royal British Columbia Museum biologist, talk about his 45 years of observations on this fascinating animal. Jim will use slides and video to document much of the life history of these animals with emphasis on their reproduction. Jim will also have a limited number of copies of his book SUPER SUCKERS—The Giant Pacific Octopus and other Cephalopods of the North Pacific, available for sale. $25, cash only please. Come and celebrate Halloween with the “Devilfish”!
Meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159 of the Fraser Building, University of Victoria. Free. Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend!
