VIDEOS: Mating Mimic Octopus

The Mimic Octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus, makes a habit of disappearing in plain sight by pretending to be something its not. I cannot help but wonder if they’re a bit exhibitionist as well.
There are a surprising number of videos showing the Mimic Octopus mating in plain sight, with no inhibitions about who might be watching.
