Blue-spotted ribbontail ray perfectly poised in a coral nook
Blue-spotted ribbontail rays are a fairly small ray, fond of hiding inside ocean cavers, under reef ledges or in shipwreck debris. They are easily sighted because of their electric blue dots and equisite blue streaked tail. These enchanting rays are found in much of the indian ocean and western pacific. They follow the tide and hunt on the sandy flats before returning to their hiding nooks.

Octopuses have pigment cells consisting of three bags filled with different colors, which are adjusted at will. Coloration reflects the octopus mood. White is for fear, red is for anger, and brown is the usual colour. Combined with their comoflage abilities, the results are dazzling.
