About the Print

Featuring The Day Octopus (Octopus cyanea)

Is it a coral? Is it a fish? No, it’s a Day Octopus! Meet the masters of camouflage.

Whilst most octopuses are active at night, as their name suggests these magnificent creatures are most active during the Day. They live on tropical coral reefs and can usually be found with stashes of crabs claws displayed outside their den.

Did you know?

In many cultures the octopus holds large cultural significance and in some places they have been deemed as a god.

With eight arms, three hearts and blue blood, you could say these beauties are practically royalty.
