Exploring the Fascinating Minds of Octopuses How will an Octopus React to Different Color Lighting?
Requested by Many of our Viewers During the hour he spent under the red light, our octopus appeared very excited and energetic, swimming back and forth with his big beautiful eyes wide open. Manny, the octopus in this video, spent the entire hour under the green light sleeping in various places. This is something our octopuses rarely do when brought to the experiment tank. The yellow light also seemed to have an effect on our octopus. He spent the better part of the hour hidden in a single spot. Can you spot him? Under the blue light, he was quite active and constantly seeking human interaction. He may have been asking for food as he devoured an entire fish and a couple of mussels right after. This was a very interesting experiment and we’d like to run it again with multiple octopuses. We’ll set this up as a live experiment early next year. Hope to see you all there!
