A recent video showed the incredible camouflage technique of the blue-ringed octopus, when it takes on the appearance of a branch, going completely unnoticed.
The images show how the small octopus fuses perfectly with a branch, hanging on the end of the wood. However, as soon as it is submerged in a container of water, the octopus can be seen, showing its bright colours.
The blue-ringed octopus, which inhabits the Indian and Pacific oceans, is highly poisonous and deadly, and only shows its dazzling tones when it feels threatened.
