An octopus in its shell

The opening footage of this dive reel from Lembeh Straight in Indonesia contains some fascinating footage of an octopus seeking the security of the safety of an (abandoned?) clam shell, then carrying it around; apparently another using a coke bottle as a shell! Hairy shrimp, tube worms, baby cuttlefish, angler fish, blenny, eels, pipe fish. I say find this diver, make friends with him, and maybe he’ll show you where these spots are.

Seriously, this is one reel I’m going to return to time and again as I learn more of the names of these creatures.
