When marine biologist Roger Hanlon captured the first scene in this video he started screaming. (If you need to see it again, here's the raw footage.) Hanlon, senior scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, studies camouflage in cephalopods--squid, cuttlefish and octopus. They are masters of optical illusion. These are some of Hanlon's top video picks of sea creatures going in and out of hiding.

@tsarstepan,
I saw that video, perhaps on TV, just in the past day or two. Octopises are some tricky devils.

@sozobe,
They are amazing, but somehow I doubt they are all that cuddly.

The static view of the Tsar's video looks much like the one Robert posted around a year ago.
