Tremoctopus Amazing Defense Mechanism

MurasakidakoUnlike most octopuses that squirt thick clouds of black ink to confuse their predators, the blanket octopus (Murasakidako in Japanese) unfurls a giant sheet of webbing that trails behind like a cape. The webbing breaks apart rather easily when attacked — much like a lizard’s tail — and it gets wrapped around the predator’s face, giving the octopus a chance to flee.

Watch the amazing video to see the Murasakidako in action!
