Find the baby O. briareus

Hopefully this will be harder than some of my others because the camera did not "see" the subject much better than I did :biggrin2:. Octpuses can be hard to find in an aquarium, young ones almost impossible if they are not out in the open so I amazed myself when I found our new guy today. Depending on intrests and guesses, I have a couple of hint photos I can add before giving the answer :sagrin:



This should give it away. I thought I had one not quite so obvious :oops: The match to the polyps is what I have not seen before.

:roflmao: Oh, there is one there alright and is the target of the focus but even when I expose it you might have difficulty seeing it because of its disguise but two arms and the eye are decenable and the mantle visible. I have not seen an octopus disguise itself quite this way. I will say that this first photo is likely to be impossible and will post one with the area isolated tomorrow. However, I had to search the whole tank to spot it. ... name definitely needed. I won't know sex for months and the "it" sounds too cold.

Obscure Octavia

I have been trying to take a photo for this thread of Octavia because it is so often difficult for me to locate her quickly just to realize she is sitting in the open. This one is not terribly difficult (hint: Clicking on the photo once will enlarge it, using Firefox/Chrome you can click on the enlarged image to see a medium sized picture)



Answer is posted here in Octavia's thread
