Watch This Sleeping Octopus Change Colors as She Dreams

Watch This Sleeping Octopus Change Colors as She Dreams
By Aral Bereux -November 9, 2019



In what may seem another strange discovery, the highly intelligent octopus can seemingly dream. While filming for a documentary, a marine biologist caught incredible footage of an octopus in a deep sleep. The rare footage documents the changes in color as she rests upside down in her aquarium.

Marine biologist Dr David Scheel narrates the documentary clip that shows the octopus’ cloaking abilities activate even when sleeping. Scheel notes the dream the octopus may be experiencing is extraordinary to cause this color change.

“If she is dreaming, this is a dramatic moment.

So here she’s asleep, she sees a crab and her color starts to change a little bit … Then she turns all dark.

2. My wife thinks octopuses are alien lifeforms.

She thinks they are as intelligent as we are and will not eat calamari. I tried to tell her that's squid, not octopus. Lol

5. So glad if you find some interesting. I am addicted to these new (to me) articles, etc.

It really would be an empty experience if I couldn't share them!
