I was jogging along the TsimShaTsui East Promenade yesterday when a little boy suddenly jumped up screaming, with something a few inches long dangling from his fishing rod. At first I thought it was a puffer fish, which turned out to be this little octopus. It tried to escape but it didn’t look promising.
Half an hour later, I found that someone else had caught this other little octopus, who tried to splash at me.
In the 6 years in which I have been jogging along TST East, I have never seen someone catch an octopus. Then two on the same day, within half an hour. The rate of increase was two divided by zero = infinity! If this was not an invasion, I don’t know what is!
