It is only 10 in the morning for me, and this has already made my day :)

I am SO jealous of chromatophores.
Live, moving, colour changing tatoos.

“If we think the world looks like how we see it.”
I’m glad I’ve got a weekend to digest that one…

Kelptopus! And a rocktopus to boot.

I wish I could camouflage myself so well. I’d go to work every day and blend into the background by looking just like a bloke sitting at a desk, tapping away on a computer. No-one would ever suspect.

This is easily the most epic thing I have learned this year. I am glad my children cannot camouflage as well as squid.

the vid says the Octopus can’t see color. And wikipedia says they can see light polarization. They can still match color when camouflaged tho. I thought color was a function of the wavelength & polarization is about the plane in which the wave travels. so are they detecting color under water because each color has a certain polarized signature???

Epically brilliant video, but how irritating is that they
change narrators in the middle of a sentence?
Not just once, but
over and over again?
Why was that necessary?
