Free Swimming Caribbean Reef Octopus

Good morning, I have a beautiful free swimming Caribbean Reef Octopus for you all today that we found out on a night dive in front of the Sea Aquarium in around 40 feet of water. This guy, like so many we find, was super curious and seemed like he or she was just showing off for us, it was a total blast to watch. Many times they climb to the top of a coral head, launch themselves off into midwater, and then land in another area. I could honestly follow them all night! MORE
