(another) octopus (#51A, added 8 Jan '98)

This octopus is keeping a wary eye on me as it slowly crawls away. As it moves across the reef, its head seems to remain almost motionless. The siphon is clearly visible, perhaps in a defensive posture as it stays prepared to "ink" me if I get too close.

Identification: unknown; too many species and their looks are always changing
