Rambo, the Octographer

Say “cheese!”

Rambo is the world’s first professional shutterbug.  Aquarium staff at the Sea Life Aquarium trained one of their octopus (via operant conditioning) to push a red button, which is connected to a digital camera’s shutter button in an underwater camera housing.  Aquarium visitors can pay $2 for photos taken by Rambo, with proceeds going towards conservation programs.

Here’s a video (produced by Sony, who supplied the camera) of Rambo snapping away.

    I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
