This cuttie is a baby Caribbean reef octopus, shifting color as soon as it hatches. This proves once more the natural capabilities of the octopuses for camouflage. This one was responding to the black tabletop beneath its tank.

“It was going into an instant camouflage as soon as it came out of the egg,”

The original video was posted by the Virginia Aquarium.

Can you spot the octopus? 🐙 

Look closely at the photo above and you might spot a little cephalopod among the many invertebrates of Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary! 

Cordell Bank is a deep-water feature located along the cold California Current. Each year, the current brings in nutrient-rich water, which supports a rich biological community of fishes, invertebrates, and more. What else can you see in this photo?

The Okeanos Explorer has discovered a very cute octopus at a depth of 4,290 metres.

This is the deepest an octopus of this particular sub order of octopus has ever been seen. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration noted this is a completely unsubscribed species and perhaps not belonging to any specific genus. Highlighting how little we still know about the creatures in the depths of our oceans.

She’s beautiful
