Octopus imitating coral

Here’s an octopus caught off guard in the deeps of Ireland and pretending to be some rock formations and then coral. It’s quite big. I remember Diver Laura saying that sea creatures can grow larger in colder water, because the dissolved oxygen content is higher. Turns out that relation may be due to a lack of biologic activity in the colder water.

Consider getting this plesiosaur mug and filling it with hot cocoa to warm your ocean reading and viewing!
