Common octopus (Octopus vulgaris)

Octopus mostly hide in holes or under rocks during the day as they are nocturnal feeders. However they are quite inquisitive so will put their heads up to see what is happening as a group of divers goes by (see inset photo)!
They pull rocks and bits of shell in on top of themselves to cover the entrance to their holes.
