Where's Waldo? (The Octopus).

It's pretty well known that octopuses use camouflage as a defense mechanism.  But how exactly do they do this?  And what are the limits of their abilities?  Check out this video, complete with over the top science-drama music, to get a better idea of how cephlapod's chromatophores allow them to achieve such impressive camouflage feats, as well as seeking some pretty cool footage.

That was awesome, thanks for sharing. Here's some more footage on Cephalopods! (And why cuttlefish are my favorite.)
