Cuteness overload!!!!

Baby octopus (actually an adult bottletail squid (Sepiadarium kochii) - Taxonomy fail!) picked up on a night dive.

 

About a centimeter in size.

 

Check out the chromatophores and iridophores.

 

Also, here is a video by Roy Caldwell of this animal burying itself in sand.
