    The mimic octopus is sort of like a sea chameleon, except instead of just mimicking colors, it can impersonate fifteen different sea creatures. This animal was discovered in 1998 and lives primarily in the tropical seas of South East Asia.

    The mimic octopus is a really cool creature, discovered in 1998 off the coast of Indonesia. The octopus is a brown and white striped animal that can impersonate sea snakes, lionfish, and flatfish as a means of avoiding predation. The octopus can not only arrange its body in such a way that it mimics other animals, but can also alter its colors to more closely resemble a less appetizing creature. The octopus has the ability to determine which animal it should impersonate based on the predator it encounters, a sign of real intelligence.
