Mimic Octopus mating

In November 2011, while diving in the Straight of Lembeh, Indonesia, I came across these Mimic Octopuses mating! Footage filmed in HD with a Sony EX1R and Gates Housing (Fish-eye video lights).

 From our friends at Deep Sea News comes this great video of two(?) Mimic octopuses mating (?).  The awesome mimic octopus can assume many different forms to serve it in the wild, so check out the video and see if you can see any of the different animals “doin it”.
