at the beginning, the video shows one blanket octopus moving through the water, with its rainbow-colored, blanket-like silhouette that is there to scare attackers away. as the video progresses, a second octopus joins the first one and together, they dance away. scientifically called tremoctopus, the blanket octopuses occupy surface to mid-waters in subtropical and tropical oceans and its name references its long, transparent webs that connect the dorsal and dorsolateral arms.
