This is the amazing moment that an octopus finds itself the perfect camouflage spot beneath the seabed.

The sneaky sand octopus manages to make itself invisible as it wriggles away into the sand.

A golden brown-grey, the little beast is the perfect colour to blend in at the bottom of the ocean.

Julie Anne Casey captured this moment on camera in the Mornington Peninsula, Australia as she searched for the elusive sea creature.

Julie said: “I was so excited to finally see one because I absolutely love the unpredictability of occys.

“We went out specifically looking for Sand Octopus and Jamie is an expert in finding them. 

“It didn’t take him long to find our first one but it didn’t want to stay around for long and buried itself.”
