Masters Of Camouflage: The Octopus

  • Published on Mar 3, 2016
  • Octopus is the most intelligent and widely populated among the entire Ocean. There are many different types of the octopus with some are deadly for humans. They are masters of camouflaging themselves among the reef with a skin ability to mimic exact the same color and the texture of the surface.
    In this video you can see the footage of 3 different octopuses of the same species, which I was fortuned to film on several dives within Lembeh Strait area. The baby, is only about 2 inches long, the mid-size, less than 2 feet and the Giant, is over 4 feet in length. Aren't they amazing?

    These are confirmed to be actual aliens. So yes, we have been contacted my extraterrestrial life forms and they're called Octopuses. Not fucking Octopi. That's old. It's Octopuses now. Just like how it changed Coloured Person to Black to Person OF Colour.
    These creatures prove Panspermia: the theory that Earth was "seeded" by extremophiles that can live on chunks of space rock and when those rocks hit a water planet, they evolve into something like an octopus. That's just one example. Had it hit the ground and not ocean it might be a giant bug or something.

      Yes, we were built here :) Annunaki "Gods" have to use some kind of base materials to create slaves with limited life cycle, they used their own chromosomes when engineered first creatures, mixtures of animals and humans... check the Valley Of Kings stories about forbidden tomb, which has a mixture of different bones... and... of course... those Believes in Gods, cross reference from different religions around the world, which say that long time ago Gods came from the sky... this is just a story and it doesn't mean I believe in it, same as we had monkeys 6M years ago, before the Ice Age, who become humans while there are still same monkeys live today - the Evolution... History always gets re-written, every 50 years in averages, or by Wars Winners.

      Fish not Fishes, Octopods not Octopi... got the same issues to understand why is that... same as Colors vs Colours :}
      Humans are more likely are aliens to Earth, our genes are dated to ~55,000 y.o. We can't stay underwater 20 min like most mamals or be on a Sun without burning our skin like most animals... we are not adopted to this planet.

      yeah I believe in god too but I just don’t recommend talking about him on the internet because ya yknow most the people on the internet are atheists, and most assume that you’re shoving religion down their throats when you talk about him or they just want to call you dumb for believing in god. Shame shit like this happens.

      Khn Rzk Yes i came here after i saw octopus was doing camouflage in Dory movie. He was hidden on the poster of cat. That why i came here to see in their sea life. It was pretty cool of what octopus can do.

    • Logan K
      Logan K 3 months ago

      Jagason um Khn Rzk was saying who come here AFTER watching Dory.. He just said AFTER which is of course everyone have already seen it. Also he meant to say that coming here to watch this view because you guys just saw the octopus was doing camouflage in DORY movie. So before you correct Khn Rzk.. how about double check yourself because otherwise someone else here will CORRECT you in the big time.

    With The Exception Of The Time That Octopus Attacked That Guy That Was Too Close To It's Lair, Has Anyone Ever Been Bitten By An Octopus On Film🤔

      Quentin Kirk TL;DR No. Octopuses don’t bite humans and nor would your octopus bite that diver either. It wasn’t an attack per se. It just seems like that. Yes, I saw the video.
      No. Octopus don’t bite humans or anything else it doesn’t intend to eat. Knowing octopuses like I do and I have seen the video I can see why people would call it an attack especially to be sensational about it and get the most press but I don’t think I believe it was an attack on the man. Octopus are extremely intelligent and they like to take things away from people and grab on. They especially seem to have a fascination with diver’s goggles and scuba gear particularly the mouth piece but they really want diver’s goggles. When I look at the video it just looks like a normal octopus being an octopus and anchoring himself to the diver in order to pull his googles and investigate everything about this diver. Octopus love to take things away from divers. Generally though they are shy or scared and swim away even using their ink. They can’t use ink if they can’t get away because they would suffocate in they breathed the ink. Just like it does to it’s predator.
      But if a diver follows them long enough the octopus settles down and lets the divers near them. When they do start letting the divers touch them it isn’t uncommon for octopus to investigate the diver too by grabbing onto them and like I said they have a thing for goggles and the breathing apparatus. It could be the bubbles and the sound but like I said they are extremely intelligent. I willing to bet that since the diver was just there looking at the octopus and not harming it that it made the octopus drop it’s guard and let its curiosity set in the and the octopus was going after the scuba gear. Octopus only bite with their beaks when they have captured food. They inject venom in the prey to paralyze it. It wouldn’t have the same affect on a human anyways besides the chunk of flesh the beak would rip off. Seriously though, I don’t believe that octopus bite anything in self defense. They will fight a predator but it’s with overwhelming it with all it’s tentacles and as soon as the octopus gets free from the predator it inks as it swims quickly away. You might not have heard of octopus being all wrapped around divers and pulling at their equipment because the octopuses are all much smaller and easier to free your self from but it still takes a little work. There is plenty of videos out their of this happening. The reason the incident that you are speaking of got so much publicity is because there was a professional person video taping so there was money to be made by selling and promoting the video. But the biggest reason is because it happened with the biggest species of octopus, The Giant Pacific Octopus so it looks so much more frightening. And it is dangerous because if the diver loses his air he drowns but the octopus isn’t going to bite him. Knowing octopuses he was just being curious and friendly. It just doesn’t look that way. Especially when the media plays the danger music in the background and the narrator sounds so seriously concerned in order to draw the audience in and get them to watch. At aquariums octopus are used to the divers and will approach them too.
      Human’s have yet to create a puzzle type test that an octopus can’t master within minutes. The problem is that octopus only live a year maybe almost two. The male dies right after mating and the female dies before her eggs have hatched or as soon as they hatch so octopuses have to start completely back at square one every generation and they don’t live long enough to give humans time to test them to their max. They have demonstrated so much intelligence that in Great Britain they are giving the same rights as humans. Meaning that they recognize that they aren’t just some unthinking animal. They past the test of demonstrating that they were a conscious thinking soul or some wording like that. And that’s in a short life span with no a single parent or other octopus to teach them a thing. Idk if other countries also have done this or not.

      Help Kelp They are amazing. I love octopuses. They are my favorite. Although if I was at the beach and looked down and saw a tentacle around my leg I would scream and run. I live near the beach in Florida and to be honest a piece of seaweed would also make me scream and run too. I would regret it later though. Cuttle fish are pretty cool too because the can mesmerize their pray by lighting themselves up sort of like a marque sign. It’s not as grand as I just described by it is fascinating to watch. I would recommend finding the NOVA episode that they did on The Cuttle Fish. I think you would like it.

      Beyond The Water Surface You took this footage? You did an excellent job. Great video. I had to laugh at the beginning because I thought you were following a normal sized octopus and when it was trying to hide behind the leaf I just assumed it was a giant leaf or something. Then you moved the leaf with your finger and I realized that the octopus was a tiny little guy. I love octopuses so much. Where were you when you filmed these guys? Or places, plural? Thanks for posting this. I’m going to subscribe in case you have more great videos or videos to come.

      Berkay Deniz ..Also octopus only have three different pigments that they use to camouflage . I'm not certain yet on if each octopus is born with the same set of the three pigments or if it varies in species but, if so, that could be a reason.
