homenaje a los pescador@s de México y el mundo.
Probably part of the long-arm complex, Octopus cf. horridus, but not sure.
Found in tide pool right next to the beach. In picture about 1' wide.
I choose this ID because this is the species that spend time in tide pools...
Eating a crab.
Saw it swim under the kelp so I know it is an octopus. Unfortunately all that seems to show up in the photo is the eye.
Octopus at Kelly Tarltons, thought species was maorum, the 'Maori Octopus'
Found in kelp during low tide, mantle was about 4-5 cm in length.
This octopus was regurgitated up by a lingcod. This seem to be there favorite food.
Spotted this rather large reef octopus on a night dive. There were several divers in our group, and I think that's why it was alarmed by our presence -- it kept shifting position and changing colors to match its surroundings.
