Watch this short video and you’re likely to say what I said, “What the f*ck!”. The video is about an octopus species that was spotted near Indonesia in the 1990s. The octopus is pretty awesome; it can mimic 15 different species to protect itself from predators. I’m surprised “Paul the Octopus” from Germany got all the attention, as these little guys are way cooler.
Shape Changing Octopus
Make sure to watch until at least the 1:19 mark, as the octopus imitates an animal that looks like a turkey. Why it would make itself look like a turkey, I have no idea. From what I gather, octopuses don’t have much contact with turkeys, especially especially Indonesian octopuses.
