Octopi are well-known for the many different tactics they've developed for protecting themselves. One interesting species of octopi that well-exemplifies its ability of self defense is the Indonesian mimic octopus. Apart from typical camouflage, this octopus has learned to mimic other deadly creatures of the sea. It not only changes its color and shape, but it also changes its behavior to best emulate a predator.
