Where's the octopus? A slight digression...

While it is evident that large marine species have a special place in my heart, I cannot deny my fascination with all marine creatures of which octopuses are some of the most intelligent and intriguing. The octopus is a cephalapod mollusc of the order Octopoda. There are 300 species of which all are venomous with only one group, the blue-ringed octopuses, being deadly to humans.

This species has many defence strategies and this video is a great way to learn about their most amazing - camouflage!
