Albany  -- Baby octopi are hatching! This particular species is from California. The mother is incubating about 50 eggs right now, but six have already been greeted into their new world.

"We're all very excited, like happy fathers after a happy birth," said Richard Brown, General Curator. "We're real excited about it."

The babies are small, but self-sufficient. They don't rely on mom after hatching, because she's all out of energy after producing and watching over the eggs for so long.

She will waste away and die. They have a life span of only about a year.
