Description: 

This is the same octopus pictured in image 609 with a diver in the frame for reference. Certainly, from a distance as in this view, the animal doesn't look at all like an octopus. This sort of crypsis or camouflage is either deceptive resemblance or mimicry.

Lab or Wild: Wild; Field Location: Indian ocean, red sea
