8 Best Camouflaged Sea Creatures
Octopus, Cuttlefish, and other sea creatures use camouflage and mimicry to hide from predators and capture prey.

Number 8 Crocodilefish
The crocodilefish, also known as the Giant flathead, is a fish of medium size that can grow up to 20 inches long with an average recorded size of 14 inches.
It may be found in the western Pacific Ocean, in the coastal waters of the Philippines, Borneo, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia and Palau.
Crocodilefish have elongated bodies with particularly flat heads that almost resemble duck bills.
They dwell at the bottom of shallow waters, often camouflaging themselves on semi-exposed or sheltered reefs. The intensity of the coloration that adults have on their bodies varies in accordance to their surroundings.
Crocodilefish are ambush predators that take advantage of their camouflage to capture their pray which mostly consist of crustaceans and smaller fish.
Number 7 Penguins
Penguins use a camouflage technique known as countershading, which is one of the most common forms of marine camouflage.
While they are in the water, their black and white patterns help hide them from both predators and prey. The darker top half of the animal blends with the dark waters below and the lighter half blends in with the waters above.
The high contrast on the penguin’s body makes it one of the best known examples of animals that use the countershading technique.
Number 6 Leafy Sea Dragon
The Leafy Sea Dragon may be found along the western and southern coasts of Australia.
Its body is covered in long leaf-like protrusions, a feature that gives this marine fish the ‘leafy’ part of its name. The ‘dragon’ component of its name is derived from the resemblance it bears to the mythical creature. The leafy sea dragon’s appearance offers an excellent form of camouflage due to the lobes of skin that grow on its body. These characteristics give it the appearance of seaweed.
Number 5 Decorator Crab
Decorator crabs are known for using materials from their environments in order to hide from predators. They can also ward off predators by attaching noxious organisms to their body.
These organisms display various warning signs of their toxicity, such as bright colors, in order to discourage potential predatory attacks, a concept known as aposematism.
Number 4 Deep-sea hatchetfish
Deep-sea hatchetfish, also known as marine hatchetfish, are found in the temperate, subtropical and tropical waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
They range in size with smaller species averaging 1.1 inches long to the Giant hatchetfish, which averages 4.5 inches long. Much like its name would indicate, this creature is found in deeper parts of the ocean, at depths ranging from 160 to 4,900 feet below.
Number 3 Big Blue Octopus
The big blue octopus is found both in the Indian and Pacific Oceans in the reefs and shallow water of regions that range from the eastern coast of Africa to Hawaii.
Number 2 Mimic Octopus
The Mimic Octopus can use its highly flexible body to impersonating other sea creatures.
It can also change its texture and color to blend into the environment.
It uses pigment sacs known as chromatophores to blend in with nearby coral or algae-encrusted rocks. The mimic octopus is the only known marine animal that is able to take shape of such a wide variety of objects and animals. It uses this shape-shifting ability to capture prey as well as evade or intimidate predators. It may choose to mimic a crab as an apparent mate only to then devour potential suitors. Unlike most octopus, which tend to use coral reefs as shelter, the mimic octopus also prefers river mouths and estuaries.
The exact number of species it can mimic is not known, but most of them are poisonous. Lionfish, sea snakes, flatfish, and jellyfish are among the most common animals that this octopus imitates. Depending on the creatures it encounters, the mimic octopus will also decide which mimicry behavior is best suited for each situation.
Number 1 Cuttlefish
Cuttlefish, are often referred to as chameleons of the sea’ for their ability of blending into their surroundings by quickly changing their colors.
This creature’s skin has three optical components, which are arranged vertically, that enable it to reflect or absorb light. In response to visual information, cuttlefish use the neutrally-controlled chromatophore to change the pattern or the color of their skin.
Researchers have discovered that these cells contain luminescent protein nanostructures that give the cuttlefish its ability to quickly make elaborate changes in pigmentation.

Sea Snake Island | JONATHAN BIRD’S BLUE WORLD
In this exciting adventure, Jonathan travels to Manuk, a tiny, uninhabited volcanic island several hundred miles from the nearest populated island in Indonesia, on a mission to discover why the waters of this remote place are teeming with thousands of venomous sea snakes!

Some of the world’s richest coral reefs thrive in Indonesia. Located in the middle of the so-called coral triangle, the diversity of species and colors of Indonesian reefs absolutely amazes me every time I get the chance to dive here.
This time however, it’s not the reefs I have come to film, but a remote and uninhabited island whose waters are reputed to teem with thousands of sea snakes!
The island, known as Manuk, is an active volcano a hundred kilometers from the nearest inhabited island, smack dab in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago.
Getting there is no easy task. I have chartered the Seahorse, a traditional Indonesian Pinisi built for divers, for a special itinerary to reach Manuk Island.
Divemaster Jandri meets me at the marina in Sorong. It took me 2 full days of flying just to get to Sorong from the United States!
He takes me out to the Seahorse, my home away from home for the next two weeks.
This expedition will take 14 divers 1200 miles across the Banda Sea, from Sorong to Alor, stopping to dive along the way at many islands, the most important of which of course is Manuk.
The island is aptly named: Manuk means “bird” in several Indonesian dialects. And birds it has!
Manuk is completely uninhabited and there are a few reasons why. First of all, it’s kind of steep. But more importantly, it’s an active volcano! There are steam and sulfur vents all over the island.
Sea snakes are among the most venomous animals on Earth. They use this venom to hunt, and fortunately, attacks on people are extremely rare.
Soon I start to see other sea snakes, and I realize that more and more have been appearing. Were they here before and I didn’t see them, or did they come out from someplace?
Clearly, some were sleeping. This one is taking a nap in plain view on the reef. I guess they don’t really have to worry about predators.
I watch this one sleep for a little while, and start to wonder if it’s even alive.
Pretty soon I notice that as the snakes are waking up, they are coming over to check me out.
Like land snakes, this is how a sea snake “smells” but at the same time, the tongue flicking helps get rid of excess salt from glands in its mouth.
Because sea snakes are reptiles just like land snakes, they have lungs and need to breathe air just like people. So a sea snake must head to the surface every once in a while for a breath. Sea snakes have a huge lung that takes up nearly the entire length of their bodies so they can hold a big breath that will last a while. Each time a sea snake surfaces, it usually spends a minute or two resting and breathing, before gulping in that last big breath and diving back down to the reef.
A breath can last 1-2 hours depending on the species, but most sea snakes breathe more often than that unless they are sleeping. They can also absorb a little bit of oxygen from the water directly through their skin, which helps them extend their dives.
The next morning I’m up at sunrise, and heading out to the reef for an early morning dive. Early morning is when the sea snakes hunt, and I’m hoping to witness the reef alive with sea snakes on the prowl!
Underwater, the light levels are still low, and I’m heading out to a deep seamount where I saw a lot of sea snakes yesterday. This should be a good place to find some sea snakes hunting.
When a sea snake hunts, it takes advantage of having a small head and a thin body to go from hole to hole in the reef, poking its head inside. It hopes to corner a fish or invertebrate that’s hiding in the hole.
Once the hunting starts, more sea snakes start coming in to the reef to join the hunt.
On this seamount more than a hundred feet from the surface, dozens of sea snakes are gathering to prowl the reef for food.
Sometimes, they appear to work together to make sure nothing escapes.
