Master of Disguise
This article isn’t about a news item. Rather, it’s more a celebration of how fascinating nature can be, and how it can sometimes be so damn cool that it actually blows our mind! The Mimic Octopus aka Thaumoctopus mimicus, which was only discovered in 1998 off the coast of Indonesia, is simply amazing.
You have to see for yourself, as a textual description doesn’t do justice to how cool the Mimic’s camouflage abilities are.
That this awesome creature was only discovered by humans less than 15 years ago makes me wonder how many other seemingly magical species there are out there…
