Invisible Octopus



Nice video of a mimic octopus. They can also immitate other creatures like crabs and fish, this species was not even discovered until the 90's because any sightings were assumed to be something else.

This footage was actually presented by David Gallo, and it's from his TED talk (see: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/david_gallo_shows_underwater_astonishments.html).

Stealing his TED footage and doing a crap job in Windows Movie Maker isn't exactly a revolution, but thanks for supporting the theft of someone else's work and presenting it without proper credit and awful editing.

Pretty sure that's not a mimic octopus--Mimic Octopi have little "horns" above their eyes.
