Day Octopus

These octos get their name from being active during the day and indeed we spotted this one either hunting or hiding among the reef in Timor Leste. That distinct brown/white coloration is typical of a Day Octopus (Octopus cyanea), but they can also show a wide variety of patterns and skin textures (which unfortunately we did not get to experience).
