The blue ringed octopus lives on the great barrier reef and is one of the most interesting animals. It has an oval body with bright blue rings display prominently across it, there is a touch of orange behind the blue rings which just emphasises them even more. The tentacles are closely ringed in blue.
The octopus is extremely good at camouflaging itself can get away from all kinds of predators and tricky situations by manipulating its body and changing colour. It is difficult to find as it keeps itself well hidden. But some clever photographers have managed to take pictures of the blue-ringed octopus in all its glory and they are abundant on the internet for you to see.
The octopus eats crabs, small fish and other shellfish.
