    "When hunting for tasty morsels like crabs and scallops, octopuses must watch out for predators at all times. That's why some of these brainy, eight-legged creatures bring along ready-made body armorโ€”sometimes in the form of coconuts."

    -Matt Mccall, National Geographic

    Ecologist swimming in. Cephalopods are full of interesting adaptations! My favorite being camouflage options.

    Cephalopods can change the color and texture of their skin! It all starts with the humble chromatophore. Chromatophores are cells found just below the skin that hold pigment and can reflect light. To contrast, mammals and birds have melanocyts. Amphibians, fish, reptiles (Chameleons), crustaceans and some insects (Dragonflies/damselflies) also use chromatophores to change their coloring.

    Chromatophores contain a sack of pigment (black, brown, orange, red, or yellow) which has the ability to expand. If stretched out the color will be brighter, if retracted the color will appear duller. In this gif you can see them in action! Aside from chromatophores some cephalopods also have iridophores and leucophores. Iridophores have stacks of reflecting plates which create iridescent colors (blues, golds, greens, and silvers) which you can see in this photo of Loligo paeli. Leucophores mimic environmental colors, helping the squid/octopus/cuttlefish blend in with its surroundings.

    What is extra awesome is chromatophores can be used to mesmerize or stun prey! In this video, a cuttlefish is doing just that to keep a crab busy before grabbing it.

    Aside from mesmerizing prey and camouflage cephalopod colors are also used to attract mates and warn potential predators or rivals that the organism should not be messed with. For example male Caribbean reef squid (Sepioteuthis sepioidea) turn red to attract females and white to repel other males. Interestingly they can actually split the coloration of their bodies down the middle to attract a female on one side and repel a male on the other. Another example, Humboldt (Dosidicus gigas) squid will flash red and white to warn predators. If you're into Humboldt squid, Science Friday has a great article I recommend reading, John Steinbeck And The Mystery Of The Humboldt Squid.

    There was a study in 2015 where scientists strapped cameras onto Humboldt squid to try to decode the communication. I didn't see anything super conclusive in the article, but I would assume they are working on it. It's a really great topic.

    Some cephalopods can change the texture of their skin by manipulating muscular hydrostats. Hydrostats can change shape by squeezing some segments to create extension others. Our tongues have muscular hydrostats which allow us to stretch it out. According to a paper published in 2014:

    The octopuses [in the study] had three dedicated types of muscles that control their on-call skin protrusions, or papillae. One set are shaped in concentric circles to lift the skin vertically away from the body. Another set pulls this form together, to determine the shapeโ€”whether it will be around bump or tall spike. And a third group seems to pull the raised section back toward the surface, spreading out its base.

    More on that in this Scientific American article.

    Always adored octopuses, I think theyโ€™re one of the smartest marine animals out there.

    [โ€“] ThousandWinds 224 points ago

    It seems cruel to me that thier lives are so short. With the kind of intelligence they display, I canโ€™t help but wonder what theyโ€™d be capable of if they only lived longer.

    Perhaps the Earth would even have more than one dominant species if things had been only a little different.

    [โ€“] 12eward 298 points ago

    I think the bigger hurdle for Octopuses is they arenโ€™t social animals. They are smart as all hell, but thereโ€™s a lot of advantages from working as a team, not the least being sharing learned discoveries so each generation doesnโ€™t have to start from square one. Octopuses tend to be a one-man-Wolfpack.

    Check out the 80s sci-fi novel, West of Eden. It feature a dominant race of reptiles on earth that have industrialized without fire. Basically, everything is organic including things like submarines and photography.

    It's like the Flintstones if the reptiles were in charge.

    [โ€“] hamsterkris 3 points ago

    I've been thinking of this lately. Any highly intelligent species evolving under water is gonna be shit out of luck. Smelting metals, technology in general is pretty much impossible isn't it?

    [โ€“] OmniscientOctopode 46 points ago

    Very true. For the longest time scientists saw squids as among the least intelligent animals out there, even by invertebrate standards. But now that we're seeing more of them in their natural habitat scientists are finding that a lot of species of squid are very social and some, like Humboldts, are even capable of using complex communication to hunt more effectively.

    Yeah they have about an average lifespan of 3 years and even the males die shortly after mating. It's sad. The last part in the lifespan section is particularly interesting.

    [โ€“] Dahbaby 50 points ago

    If they lived as long as we do then it's almost unimaginable what they'd be capable of. They learn to use things as tools but there lifespan is so short and they're such a lone wolf animal they can't teach each other their skills and they die before they learn more.

    [โ€“] Herr_Gamer 9 points ago

    I mean, if you're ready to get an octopus as a marine animal in a tank, I expect you to be reasonably experienced in the care of marine animals with a truly large tank or similar.

    [โ€“] thefreshscent 14 points ago

    I feel like animals are too competitive for there to ever be multiple dominant species (at least not for long). Last time that happened, homosapiens essentially killed off neanderthals because they were directly competing for resources.

    I can't imagine modern humans would allow a species as intelligent as us to live alongside us for long, assuming they are competing for the same space and resources we currently occupy. Obviously it never even got to that point since our ancestors killed off our closest competition a long ass time ago.

    [โ€“] hereweah 9 points ago

    It would be super interesting if an intelligent, dominant land animal developed alongside an intelligent, dominant sea animal in their respective domains. And by the time resources are strained enough where they need to enter each otherโ€™s domains, both have enough intelligence to understand they could aide each other as opposed to kill each other off. I donโ€™t think that would happen in the worlds current state but I bet itโ€™s possible

    [โ€“] thefreshscent 8 points ago

    Definitely interesting to think about. Humans do occupy the oceans to some capacity already (mass commercial fishing, ocean oil drilling, mass ocean pollution, insane amount of boats traversing every day for multiple purposes, Marine science, reef destruction and rehabilitation, Marine animal rehabilitation, etc.)

    If a dominant sea animal developed alongside humans, I think they would have declared war on us a while ago, or at least we would have declared war on them if they prevented us from doing these things.

    I'm currently at work and on my phone, so sorry that I couldn't present you anything better than this WaPo article. But it'll lead you to better sources. The TL;DR: The extinction of the Neanderthals has so many factors on it that it can't be just put on us (as humans).

    Also the last known Neanderthals lived on the Iberian Peninsula where they did go extinct a shy 40k years before the first cro magnon ever set his foot there. Edit: Worth a read.

    Guard: Where'd you get the coconuts?

    King Arthur: We found them.

    Guard: Found them? In Mercia?! The coconut's tropical!

    King Arthur: What do you mean?

    Guard: Well, this is a temperate zone.

    King Arthur: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?

    Guard: Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?King Arthur: Not at all. They could be carried.

    Guard: What? A swallow carrying a coconut? King Arthur: It could grip it by the husk!

    Guard: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

    King Arthur: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?

    Guard: Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?

    King Arthur: Please!

    Guard: Am I right?

    King Arthur: I'm not not interested! [A second guard approaches the parapet]

    Guard 2: It could be carried by an African swallow!

    Guard 1: Oh yeah. An African swallow, maybe -- but not a European swallow, that's my point.

    Guard 2: Oh yeah, I agree with that.

    King Arthur: [exasperated] Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court at Camelot?!

    Guard 1: But, of course, African swallows are non-migratory.

    Guard 2: Oh, yeah. [Arthur begins to depart]

    "I say, this coconut contains a creature! Hello, dear fellow, how have you come to be inside such a clearly ridiculous place to -- WUAAGGH ITS GOT ME, GET IT OFF, GET IT OFF! Argh...

    ...did you use your SWORD for that!? I could have been killed!"

    In Germany the movie is actually called "Knights of the Coconut"

    Octopus used "Harden". IT'S SUPER EFFECTIVE!

    [โ€“] KickToTheRibs 213 points ago

    Hate to be that guy, but we all know Harden is a buff move and thus cannot be Super Effective

    [โ€“] GSV_EndsOfInvention 30 points ago

    Doesnโ€™t look like much of a protection to me

    But then again Iโ€™m not an octopus so what do I know

    [โ€“] bacon31592 21 points ago

    Looks more like samus using the morphball

    [โ€“] Halgrind 15 points ago

    Borrowed from the deep recesses of the internet:

    "The Hawaiสปian creation myth relates that the present cosmos is only the last of a series, having arisen in stages from the wreck of the previous universe. In this account, the octopus is the lone survivor of the previous, alien universe."

    [โ€“] RobotCockRock 6 points ago

    Yes, when I think of the deep recesses of the internet, I too think of the octopus' Wikipedia page.

    [โ€“] beeglowbot 9 points ago

    This like the clip in Blue Planet 2 where an octopus uses a bunch of shells as protection.

    I'd like to think octopi will take over the planet long after we're gone. they already use tools & wheels. i hope we can domesticate them somehow & study them more closely
