Cephalopod Suprise

Before cooking the octopus we spent a little time playing with our food. Sorry Mom.  This video shows an adaptation of the octopus that you don’t get to see every day.  Octopus have three types of organs that are responsible for color change; two serve as mirrors reflecting the environment and one is a colored disc capable of displaying one of four colors. They use their ability to change colors for hunting prey to mating displays.  Pretty amazing creatures.  And tasty.
