Secret Home Lab on Adam Savage’s Tested

The Tested Crew came over to the SHL as part 3 in a 4 part series about building an octopus puzzle.

(Note: This is a video series we filmed in 2018, before the current pandemic lockdown.) While we wait for the California Academy of Science’s Giant Pacific Octopus to learn Adam’s puzzle, Kishore and Indre visit biologist and cephalopod expert Rich Ross’ home aquarium and lab where Rich breeds and raises octopuses and other amazing critters. It’s one of the most fascinating home laboratories we’ve visited!
