Audience Gasps In Shock During Presentation. Keep A Close Eye On The Algae Plant To See Why.

During a TED Talk, presenter David Gallo showcases the amazing camouflaging ability of octopuses. In the video, you can hear the audience actually gasp as an apparent piece of coral is instantly transformed into an octopus. In addition to changing their color, octopuses can also morph the texture of their skin to match even spiky algae, for example. These marine creatures are truly masters of disguise. Check out the video and watch again as the mind-boggling effect is reversed and played in slow motion.
