The first scientist that studies this seemingly shapeless creature was the Biologist Mark Norman and he gave the name of mimic octopus. It is strange how mimic octopus makes it self look like a living moving animal. What is doing is, it pulls, all that arms around behind its body and swims along like a poisonous flat fish. Again this isn’t enough he’d swim along like a poisonous lion fish with these banded arms looking like the banded spines that comes off this very deadly fish.

Until now 15 separate species are known to be in the mimic octopus act. Mark Norman is not always sure exactly what the mimic octopus is doing. There is a question about it, as where this nature’s greatest actor is coming from?
