There You Are!: Impressive Octopus Camouflage Video

February 14, 2013


This is a video of marine biologist Roger Hanlon chasing an octopus when it gets all super sneaky and camouflages itself in some plant growth. Then Roger gets too close and it flicks on its BACK OFF ME warning colors before inking him and swimming away. Then there's a bunch more video trying to explain octopi camouflage and a couple other scenes of the animals hiding. Did you know octopi are colorblind? That was news to me. So was the fact we're being evicted. Let me crash at your place for awhile? I won't even use your bathroom, I'm used to going outside.

Hit the jump and prepare to OOOH and AAAH.

Thanks to my buddy Y-tree, who I once had to whip with the little stick that turns vertical blinds after he tried to pee in a beer can in my bedroom and it overflowed onto the carpet.

    Octopi are awesome. And smarter than many people I know.

    So smart that they would know the the plural of octopus is octopuses or octopodes and never octopi which is a Latin ending tacked on to a Greek word!

  • Reggie

    Octopi is an accepted plural, dummy. And the roots may be Greek, but octopus is an English word.

    And you set up a Disqus account just to make yourself look like a dick! Bravo sir.

    Also, what is a Disqus account?

    Next time you call someone a dummy, try getting your facts straight!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Because Wikipedia is always the prime source of correct information! I fear for the future of the planet.

    It's amazing how you can make nearly any comment seem twice as dickish just by adding a two word phrase at the end.

    Well, anyone claiming to be a nerd should care about accuracy! Also, the link you posted below is for a film of a squid which is a completely different family to the octopus. Maybe you should stay in that closet!

    .....just sayin'

    No shit?! Octopi & Squid the same thing?! Really?!
