Octopus Takes a Net and Won't Give it Back

Occurred on January 10, 2024 / San Pedro, California, USA

Info from Licensor: While doing Octopus enrichment at the Aquarium, this 2 Spot Octopus always tries to escape out the top. I tried pushing her back in but she suctioned onto my hand. Using a net I gently tried pushing her back in but she stole the net from me. Using a hand towel was the only thing she couldn’t suction cup on to get her back inside. You can see she has a Hermit Crab shell in her beak that I fed her. She ate the crab inside but held on to the shell for a few hours.
