Hey guys!

I was going through a website on diving pictures when i saw this octopus and the first thing that came to mind was GPO, but then i saw the location where the pic was taken (Cape Town, South Africa).
So i went through some Octopus species and i came to the conclusion that this could very well be Enteroctopus magnificus.

Here's the pic taken by Jean Tresfon in Hout Bay:

Can you guys give me a hand? If this really is E. magnificus, i guess this is the first picture of it in its natural habitat!

Thanks in advance ^^
