Caption: Caribbean reef octopus (Octopus briareus) hunting at night. It hunts by extending its body over crevices and crannies, feeling for prey with its arms. It typically feeds on crustaceans, although it also eats fish. It is known for its colour-changing ability, rapidly turning from white to green to red and other colours. Filmed in the Caribbean Sea.
