Ruby was Biomes' most popular octopus. He delighted thousands of our visitors, as well as millions of television viewers when he was featured on the PBS program NOVA (see the segment here).

Ruby was caught in Narragansett Bay in 2009 and quickly became a local marine conservation icon. With the normal one-year lifespan of an octopus, Ruby died in 2010, two months after filming his NOVA segment. Ruby is now immortalized on this limited edition t-shirt.

Ruby influenced our choice of mascot for Biomes. Our goal is to purchase a high quality octopus costume to personify our mascot and to teach and entertain children during school visits, field trips, and promotional events.

Note: We also have children's sizes available!
