Mystery Question


This is something I observed some years ago in a Victoria, BC aquarium which I have not seen described:
In a tank were two Pacific Octopuses. They were pressed together ventral surface to ventral surface. What was striking was that each sucker connected exactly with the corresponding sucker of the other. They were obviously aroused, as they were each paper white. After about ten minutes they separated and normal colour returned.

Can you tell me what I witnessed?
