Current Events: Inky's Great Escape

Those folks down under have the most interesting animals!  Last week it was all about Derek, the orphaned baby wombat in Tasmania.  This week it was revealed that a clever octopus named Inky escaped from the National Aquarium of New Zealand by squeezing through a gap in his aquarium cover and crawling into an open drain pipe, which empties out into the nearby Hawke's Bay.  Staff at the Aquarium said that they will not attempt to recapture him, so the intrepid Inky has successfully returned to his home in the briny deep, where he will hopefully live a long life as a free-roaming cephalopod.  Good luck to you, Inky!
