Caption: Coconut octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus). The veined, or coconut, octopus often buries itself in sand or mud but will use any available debris as a shelter. It is well-known for hiding in large shells, particularly discarded coconut shells. When on the move it takes its shelter with it. Photographed in the Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
