This was seen on Squeaky Beach, Victoria, Australia
Anyone have a guess on the species?
Whelp, the video didn’t load. Here’s a still.
Video loads OK from here! Cool vid! Hope you get some ID support, I'll try to summon some help.
It was the borrowing that made me think of this one but I had to look it up to be sure it matched the local :wink:
Reminds me of Octopus Minor in the tidal flats of Korea. They burrow into the sand and look very similar. Obviously not the same species, just saying there is a resemblance.
