Magnificent Video Of The Female Blanket Octopus Displaying Her Stunning Webbing When Threatened

People were amazed to discover the female blanket octopus who can grow 40,000 times the size of males and display their blanket when threatened. This particular octopus was filmed at night in the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia. According to National Geographic, "Blanket octopuses get their name from sheets of webbing that stretch between some of their arms. When threatened, they stretch their arms out, creating a blanket-like silhouette meant to frighten would-be attackers away."
