Octopus Shows off with Flashy Display


Occurred on July 6, 2019 / Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, Tulum, Mexico

Info from Licensor: "As I was driving through the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve south of Tulum, I noticed a rocky beach with lots of fossils, corals and clams. I decided to take a walk around as I knew I could find cool animals within the pools formed in the rocky beach. As a biologist I am always looking for interesting plants and animals and I was lucky enough to spot this octopus in one of them. As soon as a I saw it displaying the flashing and colour changing behavior I started recording it because I have never seen that before."
