There was a picture of an incredibly beautiful white octopus...all white, but with slight tonal differences in the white...on the cover of a brochure I got from the National Geographic. It was advertising a lecture about Hawaiian bio. I've spent most of the evening going through cephbase and the gallery here trying to figure out what it is. The closest thing I found were some pictures of a baby bimac, but when I checked in the biogeography database on cephbase, they weren't listed as indigenous. Most pictures I've found of basically white octos show a lot of brown or some other color. I know that all octos change color pretty much at will, so maybe an all white one isn't at all unusual,but would the babies be more likely to not have any other colors showing, or would it depend on the background, or the mood or are there other factors?
