Are you intelligent? or they? Most Intelligent Mimic Octopus in the World!
The octopus is believed to be one of the most intelligent creatures in the sea, which is pretty high praise for any invertebrate. But there is one species of this animal that is far and beyond any other: the mimic octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus. This amazing animal is new to science, having only been discovered in the tropical waters off the coast of Indonesia 1998, and without even a name or classification for years after that. The reason it took so long for anyone to find it is because it prefers to live in places where few divers care to explore, such as on the silty, muddy sea floor near river mouths. long with other octopus species, it has the ability to change color instantly. But what really makes this octopus different and unique is its ability to impersonate, or mimic, a whole host of other sea creatures depending on the circumstances. No other animal known to science has such a diverse ability. Some animals can mimic other species, but generally it's limited to one other.
