Caption: Day octopus (Octopus cyanea) hunting on a coral reef. This octopus, also known as the common reef octopus, is common in the tropical Indo-Pacific region. It feeds mainly on crustaceans. It can change the colour and texture of its skin to camouflage itself from predators and prey. It spends much of its time hiding in a den. Unusually for an octopus it is active by day. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Thailand.
