the amazing mimic octopus

Im sooo amazed by this creature that I had to share it with others. Octopus in general have an amazing ability to change their color and even texture on the fly to camoflage themselves from predators BUT in 1998 a diver stumbled across this mimic octopus, along with the usual bag of tricks, can also mimick over a dozen other predatory species including but not limited to lionfish, sole, sea snake and more. Below is a youtube link of a very amazing video showcasing its abilities. Enjoy

They are selling one on live aquaria right now if I'm not mistaken.

Display tank - 24g nano w/ softies/montipora

I run electrical appliances underwater and enjoy injecting things with Kalk filled syringes.

I'd care for a regular one before I tried the mimic which is much more harder
