How a Super-Fast Octopus Intimidates Its Prey (National Geographic, 2000)
Aug 16, 2000 · By Simon Crozier – National Geographic
The octopus has an impressive array of miracle weapons. Not only can it change color, individual suckers resemble tiny hands, and at least one species can pinch almost anything it wants by whipping its tentacles back and forth. But possibly the most amazing ability of all is the octopus’s ability to intimidate its prey.
One study found that spawn containing tentacles up to 1.5 inches long belonging to Ripostia cazauxi attack faster than they can swim away. Octopuses from New Zealand hunt fishes up to 2 and 1/2 feet long.[3]

To outsmart them "the delicate velocity which is essential for their own life," an octopus has taken up speedfighting." Speed fighting! not only photons but also some have the ability to fight back because they can change the color of their body into camouflage colors and stay well hidden without swimming as well.
