An Octopus doesn't only see, it can recognize you.

A research study on Giant Pacific Octopuses at the Seattle Aquarium showed that their behavior, breathing, and colors changed depending on whose face they recognized.

⚡What do ya think is going on here?⁣⁣⁣⁣
In situations where an octopus is attempting to defend itself, it will decide to shoot ink, jet away, or display dynamic color patterns which could include deimatic behavior.⁣

Deimatic is a Greek word that means “to frighten”⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Deimatic behavior attempts to frighten predators and is commonly used by animals that lack a strong defense. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
In this instance the octopus might be attempting to scare off or distract Miguel (or perhaps it’s communicating something else?)⁣

☁ Some researchers refer to this as a “passing cloud” display — but some believed this implied that the octopus was mimicking shadows cast on the oceans surface (which is unlikely)⁣
