Octopus gets to grips with Halloween pumpkin in Newquay aquarium
It seems even octopuses enjoy carving faces out of pumpkins for Halloween.
That’s according to this photo sent into us from Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium.
The aquarium’s fishy fiends are busy getting themselves ready for a deeply creepy voyage in time for Halloween – and the public are welcomed to attend.
There's a petrifying programme, which will include encounters with deadly stonefish, moray eels, wolf fish, piranhas and stinging jellyfish, lined up of terrifying talks, frightening feeding demonstrations, weird workshops and tortuous trails to enjoy every day.
Fantastic offer at Swanson Ford, Newton Abbot. 3 Years FREE Servicing and 5 Years Warranty available on your BRAND NEW FORD FIESTA with the AWARD WINNING ECOBOOST ENGINE!!!

Don't miss the Trick or Treat Touchboxes, the Pumpkin Trails for younger visitors – with the chance to win a cuddly piranha – and the fearsome Fact Finding Missions for older children with the opportunity to win an annual pass to the aquarium.
There’s also a world of incredible aquatic adventure just waiting to be discovered with over 40 displays, underwater walkthrough tunnel and giant open top tanks to explore.
Come face to face with thousands of creatures; from tropical sharks and stingrays to giant octopus and elegant seahorses.
Rockpool displays showcase the variety of local Cornish marine life and there’s also the open-top tropical freshwater caiman crocodile display as well as freshwater turtle and terrapins.
The centrepiece of the aquarium is the tropical ocean display where visitors can enjoy the closest of undersea encounters with tropical sharks and rays, hundreds of exotic reef fish and Omiros the giant sea turtle.
Other displays are home to everything from garden eels and giant crustaceans to pulsating jellyfish and living corals.
Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium is inviting visitors to attend the event during October Half Term holidays (Saturday, October 26 – Sunday, November 3).
