This is the mimic octopus. A master of disguise. In its natural state, the mimic octopus is a light beige color, and like most octopi it can change its skin pigment to blend in with its surroundings, but the mimic octopus takes things to another level altogether. Found in Indonesia and in the Great Barrier Reef, it’s an octopus that is so intelligent, when it feels threatened, it can fool possible predators into thinking that it is in fact, another, more deadly species. It does this by changing its color, shape and perhaps most interestingly the way it moves and behaves.
