Scientists are unveiling a rare octopus that has never been on public display before. And unlike other octopuses, where females have a nasty habit of eating their partners during sex, Larger Pacific Striped Octopuses mate by pressing their beaks and suckers against each other in an intimate embrace. The beautiful creature can also morph from dark red to black-and-white stripes and spots and can shape-shift from flat to expanded.
