Coconut octopus sheltering in a shell. The veined, or coconut, octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) 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.
