Mimic Octopus


Today I found this video about the “mimic” octopus. I found this video to be very interesting especially because I had never seen anything like it before, well besides a chameleon. It was so amazing how the octopus transforms itself into pretty much any sea animal for survival. I still wonder how it knows which camouflage is the best for what situation and how it learns to transform. I found this also to be relatable to life in a society like ours because as I mature, I have found that we as people tend to see the “safest” ways to survive and thrive in our society and many of us use this knowledge to thrive if not advance within it. Hmmm… Strange how similar animals seem to actually be even though we seem so different.
