"Coconut" Octopus. The

greatest.  It creates its

own little home. This one

is pulling two clam shells

together to hide in.

"Coconut" Octopus. This

one is only a couple of

inches, as they get bigger

the Coconut Octopus will

use coconut halves for

shelter.

These species have the most fascinating behaviors. Obviously intelligent, they are

sometimes curious and allow close approach. Most communicate by the color changes

that special skin cells allow. These changes can be very rapid, they will fluoresce and

flash multiple colors within seconds.

Most of the Octopus were shot at 5.30 in the evening at a Lembeh site named "Jahir".

The bottom became alive with dozens of Octopi emerging from the sand to hunt and

feed. Astonishing numbers, have never seen anything like this before.
