Last week, Jimmie the Octopus ventured out into the wild after leaving her home at the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Jimmie loved her home at the Marine Science Center, and enjoyed interacting with people. Because of this, she was reluctant to leave her cozy tank in Newport. After a little bit of coaxing with the help of a delicious crab, Jimmie ventured into the wild at the Yaquina Bay jetty, while onlookers cheered for her. Apparently Jimmie loved living in Oregon as much as we do! To read the entire Oregonian article, please click here.
