    That’s freaking awesome. I never tire of watching such examples. It is a way of perceiving something of how an octopus perceives its environment. They actually demonstrate how good they are at it.

    And somehow their skin can color-match, even though they apparently don’t see much color.

    #4) “And somehow their skin can color-match, even though they apparently don’t see much color.”

    This has always baffled me. I’ve read some ideas about how that works, but didn’t understand them. And it’s not just color. If I could do that with my skin, I’m still not sure how I’d be able to do more than mimic the color and texture of a relatively flat surface. If you can’t see your own back, how do you know you’re conforming it to fit in with a 3D environment? It’s as if they have visual receptors in their skin as well as the ones in their eyes or something.
