Octopus Camouflage Might Be the Best in the Animal Kingdom

Watch some octopus camouflage at work, as this one instantly changes its color to blend in with a fishing boat.

Octopuses are some of the strangest creatures in the ocean. Not only are they incredibly intelligent, they can also shape-shift to fit through tiny spaces and change colors to blend in with their surroundings. You’ll see the incredible octopus camouflage in action in the clip below.

A solid effort, but sorry octopus, we can still see you.

Octopus camouflage would come in handy while hunting big game, don’t you think?

Octopuses have color-changing cells that allow them to blend in with their environment. Some species of octopus can even change the texture of their skin to match undersea objects like seaweed, rocks and coral.

Did you know that octopuses can also walk on land? It’s not that uncommon for them to crawl out of the water on land to hunt prey. You can watch some bonafide walking octopus footage here.
