Chalk Talk: Nature’s Greatest Actor – The Indonesian Mimic Octopus
Who says being a great actor has to come along with expensive lessons? The mimic octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus, is found off the coasts of Indonesia—and wasn’t discovered by scientists until the 1990s. This incredible creature can change its shape and behavior to act like a number of other animal species, as a form of defense. It can mimic the poisonous spines of a lionfish, undulate flat along the seafloor like a flounder, flare out its limbs and change from white to black. When threatened by damselfish, it can change the shape of its long tentacles to match the body form of a poisonous sea snake. Earth’s oceans are filled with intriguing creatures, and new species are certainly still to be discovered!
