Author Information

     Hello Everybody! Thank you so much for checking out my website. My name is Julie Kalupa. I'm a student at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. Biology with a biomedical emphasis is my major and chemistry is my minor. I am in the pre-dental program and aspire to be an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. 
     I love to travel. Recently, while snorkeling in the ocean, I saw my first octopus. I wanted to watch it all day! It encouraged me to find out more about these mesmerizing creatures. I hope you enjoyed learning about them as much as I did!
