If you take your time the Octo will start to play with you
Octos propulsion is one way, so its fairly easy to keep him close to you by putting your hand in his escape direction
it works well and does not hurt him
one he understand that you are not a predator after him he get curios and investigates you
watch his tentakles on my hands. most people are afraid when that happens and overreact.
One of his tentakles was bitten off. perhaps by a murray, but they grow back.
here he rests on my arm. after he goes up my face and mask. let him go and he goes off from alone.
