We decided to do our first dive at North Bondi last week and after about 30 seconds in the water, we ran into this little fella trying his best to impersonate a rock. He is a Gloomy Octopus otherwise known as a Sydney Octopus. His body was around 20cm long and the longest of his arms was approximately 80cm long.
He wasn’t quite that keen for us to harrass him while he was trying hunt for crustaceans so tried his best to copy any nearby objects such as kelp and other underwater plants. We go some fantastic practice at using the macro modes of our cameras as he stayed quite still for long periods hidden in the plants. Hope you guys enjoy the video.
