Mimic Octopus

Mimic octopus pretending to be a flatfish. The mimic octopus is a new and exciting creature recently discovered off the coast of Indonesia. The mimic octopus, not to be confused with the Wunderpus photogenicus, is the first cephalopod discovered to impersonate other dangerous sea creatures by altering its behavior, actions, and/or color. The mimic is very intelligent and is able to determine which dangerous creature to impersonate based on which will present the greatest threat to the current predator. However, being a newly discovered species, research is still preliminary and the number of organisms it can imitate is not yet known.
