An adult day or Cyanea octopus (Octopus cyanea) changing color and texture in the marine preserve at Honolua Bay on the northwest side of Maui, Hawaii, USA. Pacific Ocean. Day octopus are unusual because they are active during daylight hours (diurnal) and extremely adept at camouflage. Octopus cyanea excavates lairs in coral reefs and rubble which can be located by identifying middens of prey items such as empty shells from bivalves and crabs. Octopus exhibit rapid growth, an early age at first maturity, and a short lifespan, living approximately one year and dying after spawning. Octopuses are the most intelligent invertebrates, with mental capabilities comparable to that of the average housecat. Maze and problem-solving experiments show that they have both short- and long-term memory, although their short lifespans limit the amount they can ultimately learn.
