    Ok check this out!

    This is either a well done bit of video fakery, or the most incredible example of natural camouflage ever caught on camera. See (or rather, don't see) for yourself.

    That is delightfully amazing! What I wonder about is how does the octopus (or any other camouflaging animal) know how to match something that THEY AREN'T LOOKING AT? Maybe I'm just not giving enough credit to their peripheral vision.

    Not fake!! I have been a scuba diver for 15 years and I know a lot about these amazing creatures. The camouflage is not like the cameleon, cephalopods, ( octopus, squids, nautilus and cuttlefish ) are the best at camouflage, the have specialized skin cells that can change color very rapidly, and octopus have tree hearts, very cool animals.

    Fake, extremely good but fake!

    God I don't believe that so many think it's a fake. I would think you would first look up somethings on the net before declaring it a fake.

    Its first—and most amazing—line of defense is its ability to hide in plain sight. Using a network of pigment cells and specialized muscles in its skin, the common octopus can almost instantaneously match the colors, patterns, and even textures of its surroundings. Predators such as sharks, eels, and dolphins swim by without even noticing it.

    I can assure everyone... that is NOT a fake. An octopus really can do that.
