In Australia, a rare “rainbow” octopus was caught on video

Marine biologist Jacinta Shackleton, while exploring the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, met an extremely rare “rainbow” octopus in the water. She filmed this meeting and posted it online.

In the video you can see a small multicolored tremoctopus, which literally shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow. In the video, you can also hear Shackleton’s raptures — they are so loud that they can be heard even under water and through a diving mask.

And this is not surprising, because “rainbow” tremoctopus are considered very rare and live mainly in the open ocean, so it is even more unusual to see it on the reef.
