The Albany Flint RiverQuarium has a new eight-legged guest.

Henry the Octopus is now calling the RiverQuarium home and has been there for about two weeks.

He's is a Caribbean two spot octopus that is a part of an octopus species that doesn't get any larger than a lemon.

The octopus has false eye spots to distract predators.

It's known to eat shrimp, fish and sometimes even other octopus.

"Come down and see him quick because they live about a year and he was an adult when we got him. So just hurry down and see him. He's a nice little octopus," says Robert Brown, Flint RiverQuarium Curator.

He says octopuses are the smartest invertebrate that there is.
