I seen this video on another forum and can't beleive this, ive heard that an Octopus can blend in with their surroundings but i never knew it was this good at it!

I've seen some good clips of them blending in, but that was the best. Good luck if you're trying to catch one.

If that's true, then I guess it's my pencil that makes spelling mistakes.

i was thinking that, surely you would see the eye?

I agree that it's bogus. When played in reverse the octopus actually springs little fronds that are akin to the plant that it's blending in to. If it weren't for that, it would possibly be up to question for me.

They are amazing but they don't work in Hollywood

thats not even close to right

I have seen this clip (or something just as alarming) before. It's real AFAIK, just quite an exceptional example that happened to be captured on camera.

I just can't believe that.

No wonder they taste so good... They just blend in with whatever you cook it with

I had a dive instructor as bad as you. He'd be showing us pictures of what we were going to see on the dive, each one with a comment "This is great grilled", or "I love this one with lemon".
Beyond that, here be more info:

The mimic octopus is pretty cool too, I saw one on a David Attenborough programme on BBC1 last year. It can do a remarkable job of impersonating a sea snake, a flounder (flatfish), and a lion fish, and quite a few other things, apparently.

see danny's links are much more believeable. but that first video just isnt right, if an animal could do it like that, that qucikly the military would be all over it

I think the thing most people don't realise is that they can change the texture of their skin as well as the colour.
