The octopus is one of the few sea creatures that can cleverly camouflage themselves underwater. Besides the ability to change color, octopus can also transform into many different shapes such as curling up or transforming like a sea snake… to blend in with the surrounding environment.

There are thousands of color-changing cells on the skin of an octopus called subcutaneous pigment cells . These cells are stored in the bag – it can burst at any time.

This pigmented “bag” is linked to nerves, by moving, the octopus will be able to change the texture and color of its skin. This makes it possible for them to hide under the coral layers without being detected.

When detected, the octopus will “appear” , stretching its long, large tentacles forward to make them look more intimidating. One of the reasons octopuses camouflage is to hide from predators. If threatened, they are ready to spray ink at the attacker before finding a safe place to hide.
