    Default Mimic Octopus

    My daughter emailed me this video yesterday. I was totally blown away. I knew that an octopus could change its color, but this particular one (Indonesian mimic octopus, which was discovered in the 1990s) can change its shape and behavior based on conditions or other animals around it - for example, a flounder, lionfish, sea snake, and something at the 1:22 point that looks like something out of one of my nightmares:

    Amazing! He almost looks like he'd have a sense of humor. Furry turkey with human legs, lol.
    Octopi are fabulous creatures.

    I'm way too hungover to properly express how much this seriously blows my mind.

    I've seen this on discovery, it's flipped out. Magical.

    They are such adorable creatures and very clever.
