A singular and spectacular event, took place in the Philippine city of Dauin. It shows the speed of an octopus to change colour and thus mimic the environment around it.

The video begins with the animal being captured by a diver. Slowly, it approaches the octopod.

For a few seconds, the octopus looks at how the human approaches and makes a radical decision, which was immortalized by the person who recorded the event.

As can be seen in the video, the animal changes colour to resemble the ocean floor and escapes quickly.

According to the description of the clip, the situation occurred in the city of Dauin, in the Philippines. This place is known for its crystal clear waters, where different and exotic species live.
