A tour of Manchester Sea Life and talk on the fascinating life and habitats of octopuses
Octopuses occupy habitats from shallow coral reefs to the abyssal plains of the deep sea floor, and have evolved very different ways to cope with the demands of where they live.
To celebrate World Octopus Day 2019, this talk will dive into the diverse world of octopuses, focusing in on their amazing camouflage abilities in these varied habitats.
Dr Sarah Zylinski is a marine biologist whose research into cephalopod vision and camouflage has taken her on adventures from diving in the shallow waters of South Australia to aboard research cruises exploring the deep oceans of the Peru-Chile Trench.
