A day octopus (Octopus cyanea) hunts on the reef by spreading the webbing between its arms over a coral head, trapping crustations and fish underneath. This octopus turned bright white while hunting after a small yellow damsel and a triggerfish started aggressively biting it, trying to drive it away from their territory. Cannibal Rock, Horseshoe Bay, Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
