Mysterious creatures of the sea
The common octopus is considered the most intelligent invertebrate, and is well known for its ability to escape some very powerful predators. Octopuses can hide in plain sight by instantaneously
changing their skin tone to match their surroundings. They can even change the texture of their skin to match nearby rocks and coral. Octopus also carry around things like coconuts or marine shells for hiding themselves when danger presents itself. Secondly, they can discharge a cloud of dark ink which acts as a smoke screen to confuse attackers. Lastly, their ability to squeeze into impossibly small locations saves them from countless predators.
