    Indonesian Mimic Octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus)

  • Jay Hardy

    The Indo-Malayan mimic octopus takes intelligence to a new level. In this picture it is showing its normal brown-and-white colouring. But it can impersonate the physical likeness and movement of dangerous or poisonous animals, such as lionfish, sole and sea snakes. It decides which dangerous sea creature to imitate depending on the predator it's confronted with. Michael swam with this one for an hour, watching as it changed shape.
