CARIBBEAN REEF OCTOPUS | BELIZE DIVING

Nick Barker

What did the octopus say to the conch? You taste sooo good! An everyday battle on the reef here at Turneffe, the Caribbean Reef Octopus (Octopus Briareus) usually hunts at night but does sometimes hunt by day feeding on all kinds of shellfish including shrimps, crabs and lobsters. The conch is a real favorite and a big meal for this octopus we spotted on one of our recent dives. Being a super intelligent Cephalopod, Octopi remember things and are known to avoid places where they last encountered an enemy, they can disguise themselves as algae or even coconuts to avoid detection. A female octopus can lay up to an amazing 200,000 eggs but will not be around to see the little minute versions of herself because she will die off before the eggs hatch, she does however defend  the eggs  for the rest of her days attacking anything that goes near her nest! Total commitment from mom!
