HAPPY WORLD OCTOPUS DAY!

Playing a game of eye-spy with our two-spot octopus to cephalobrate? Don’t let its two flashy blue eyespots fool you! Eyespots are a common phenom in the animal kingdom, like the ones you may spot on a butterfly’s wings, and under the sea it’s no different. This octo’s bogus baby blues can confuse predators into attacking an arm instead of an eye, letting this master of deception escape to swim another day.
