Hey all,

My friend found this one in the tide pools up in Monterey, California. He says it flashed red when it was initially disturbed (as seen in the photo), but after calming down a bit it changed to white. Any ideas as to what species it might be?

(the octo was, of course, returned to its pool after posing for the picture)

I added a link to this thread on our octo bites sticky. It would be nice if you could get a description of the bit from your friend and add it to the thread.
