Don’t be a “Poor Unfortunate Soul”; the Aquarium of the Pacific is offering patrons the chance to adopt an octopus, and tomorrow is your last chance to make this Ursula of sorts “Part of Your World.”
Those who adopt an octopus at the $50 level or above will be entered into an opportunity drawing to meet the aquarium’s giant Pacific octopus, according to a statement from the aquarium.
“The winner and one guest will have the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes for a special feeding and a chance to touch our giant Pacific octopus,” the aquarium said in a statement.
Adoptions help the aquarium provide food and medical treatment for its animals, and adopters will also receive an adoption certificate, octopus fact sheet and octopus color photo, the aquarium said.
Adoptions at higher levels can also get an octopus plush, aquarium admission tickets, behind-the-scenes tours and animal encounters.
