The Coconut Octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) can be found at several muck dive sites and sandy substrate here in Romblon. It is interesting to watch their behavior as they prefer hiding in shells or parts of a coconut. They also like to hide under the sand. The Coconut Octopus can be easily identified by the bright line along the suckers and is a good subject for behavior shots and videos (underwater macro photography).
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
