Possessing the awesome ability to alter its shape, behavior, and color, this Indonesian Mimic Octopus is the master of deception.
This is an up-close look at life under the sea for an Indonesian Mimic Octopus.
Follow this amazing creature around and see how impressive it is at confusing its enemy.
If you’re not impressed by the unbelievable ability this Mimic Octopus has to confuse an attacker, than I’m not sure what will. Changing color, shape, and behavior is a trio of qualities not many creatures possess.
Swimming around the ocean floor imitating a flounder, impersonating a lion fish that has venomous tips, and giving a very similar appearance of a sea snake to deter an attack from the damselfish can leave anyone flabbergasted.
The crab in the beginning of the video seemed to find out very quickly that he didn’t want anything to do with the octopus and backed away… very slowly.
The Indonesian Mimic Octopus has the extraordinary capability to completely change it’s appearance, and that makes it one cool creature, and us all a little flabbergasted.
