Video of Octopus and Mimic Octopus in the Lembeh Strait

Please "like", share, comment or view this Lembeh Octopus video on YouTube.

The video opens with a coconut (veined) octopus (Octopus marginatus) at Pantai Parigi in the Lembeh Strait, sheltering inside a broken glass.

We then encounder an amazing mimic octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus) at Aw Shuks impersonating a flounder and banded sea snakes while fleeing from observers. This species was not officially identified and described by scientists until 1998.

This footage is included as a bonus feature in my DVD, Mucky Secrets - The Marine Creatures of the Lembeh Strait.

Shot in June 2006 at Two Fish Divers.
