Here’s an update on our local Narragansett Bay octopus that lives at the Biomes Center.

“Ruby” has learned how to unscrew the lid from a glass jar to get at his food. He demonstrates this skill each day for the public/school groups who visit us.

This is a photo of him holding the jar lid after opening it (he likes to carry it around with him like a souvenir).

Biomes Marine Biology Center will be open to the public during February vacation each weekday from noon to 4 p.m.

The Center is located at 6640 Post Road, North Kingstown, R.I. 02852. Phone is (401) 885-4690
