Day octopus is a real shapeshifter!

I just returned from the Cook Islands, and wanted to share this video I shot of what I believe to be a day octopus (Octopus cyanea). I just happened to spot him when my wife stopped to shoot a blue crocea clam, and spent the next hour with him as he showed off some amazing disgiuses.
Find it here: https://youtu.be/7m7zQtaAnLY

If you haven't seen my other octopus video, look below in this forum for this title:Octopus playing hide and seek in video. It's a Caribbean reef octopus that spent 10 minutes trying to trick me with his camo tricks.
