We're constantly being told that an octopus can fit through any hole. As long as he can fit his beak through a small space, his entire body will follow. We decided to test this out ourselves. Arnold was feeling confident on this day and was definitely up to the challenge. He's been a busy octopus lately here at Octolab.

Small Typo at 0.28 - It's 0.98" not 3.

In no way was the octopus in this video placed in harm's way at any time.

The octopus in this video weighs about 4 pounds (1.8 KG). He measures approximately 30 inches (76cm) from the tip of one arm to the tip of the opposite arm when he's stretched out.

The spaces he attempts to go through in this challenge are
0.70 inches (1.7cm)
0.79 inches (2cm)
0.98 inches (2.5cm)
1.18 inches (3cm)
1.38 inches (3.5cm)

For those of you that are interested in knowing the exact dimensions, the length of the rectangular space is 11 inches (28cm).
