Oh What Joy For Every Girl And Boy

Pic of the entrance to the Octopus exhibit in the delightful Monterey Bay Aquarium.

But the Seahorses exhibit stole the show.

Here's a sample (click for bigger image). Those leafy things you see? All seahorses. Camouflage taken to some unbelievable heights. Or depths.

wow that seriously impressive - I could figure out two sea horses in the small pic but they rest just looked like sea weed!

blewgenes: woah, the first clip is incredible. No way in hell anyone can guess it's an octopus. And the TED clip is all sorts of awesome. Thanks for the links!

Szer: it took me about 2 minutes in front of the display to figure that out. Two minutes that probably mean life or death to a seahorse.
