Our favorite cehalopod, the mimic octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus) (also pretty famous on tumblr) is an expert at camouflage and mimicry. It can adopt body patter to impersonate other organisms, such poisonous flatfish, lionfish and sea snake. It changes its color and/or behavior to resemble another species, to deceive predators and to lure prey.
According to Norman and Hochberg (2005) the species has been reported mainly from the indo-malayan archipielago, including New Caledonia, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, In 2005, a mimic octopud was photographed for the first time in Thailand (Guld of Thailand at Sak Island) but the specimen was not collected.
The first captured record of a mimic octopus was in april 2009, off Phetchaburi Province, upper Gulf of Thailand, was tranferred to Kasetsart University, and was recently (in 2013, people, we are in 2014!!) reported.
