Mimic Octopus

The Indonesian Mimic Octopus has a unique ability to turn virtually any color or pattern. It is naturally brown and spotted but has been seen in every hue from ghost white, as shown above, to brilliant blue and fiery red or mysterious pink. Though many octopi are known to change color and skin texture, only the Mimic Octopus can take on the shape and features of other animals and surroundings.
