This octopus can mimic around 50 different species of animals. It takes the form of a predator of the animal which tries to hunt it down. They have great memories and remember the predators of an area. They have been observed mimicking plenty of other animals including stingrays, sea snake, jellyfish, and starfish. Not only do they copy the movements but they also turn their bodies to those colors so that they will fit the description well.

Now tell is this picture funny or creepy!
