The blanket octopus is perhaps the only creature on earth aside from man that truly appreciates a sense of drama. For example, most animals use things like poisons, sprays or smells as defensive mechanisms to ward off attackers. Not the blanket octopus. The blanket octopus instead uses its giant, built-in flowing cloak to dissuade potential predators by essentially convincing them that it’s the ocean’s Batman.
And you know what’s even crazier? It’s not a bluff: The blanket octopus totally is the Dark Knight of the sea, in every sense of the title. It’s ingenious, it’s merciless and it is, in all likelihood, plain old balls-out crazy. And perhaps most Batmanny is the simple fact that, while the blanket octopus doesn’t have any “powers” of its own, that doesn’t stop it from jumping into the fight. Over the generations, the blanket octopus evolved an immunity to the poison of the man o’ war, not because it was getting preyed on by that species, but so it could get in nice and close to the thing and rip off its poisoned tentacles, which it then carries around the ocean and uses to whip anything that looks at it sideways.

I love this description. 

I want to be one when I grow up.

This is my Patronus.

nature is AWESOME. 

SO AWESOME
