Coconut Octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) can grow so their arms are up 30cm in length. They tend to be quite active during the day but are also very often found buried beneath the sand. The adults generally protect their bodies by hiding in shells or coconut halves hence where they get their common name from.



This photo was taken by Christian using our rental Canon S95 camera, which you can hire from 'The Digital Centre', whilst diving at either of our dive centres at Kima Bajo or at Lembeh Cottages.
