March 2014 Cover
About the Cover

The alien-looking red octopus invading this month’s cover is a remarkable and fascinating animal. A mollusk (more specifically, a cephalopod), the octopus has remarkable shape-, color-, and texture-changing abilities that allow it to instantly blend into its surroundings, rendering it all but invisible to unwanted intruders in its habitat. This month, snorkeler and fish fanatic John Robertson recalls a seemingly smitten octopus pair he encountered (along with various puffers, eels, butterflies, and squirrelfish) while snorkeling in Egypt’s Red Sea (p. 68).

Tip of the Month:

That most fish like bananas? Seeds and fruits make up a good portion of the diet of many popular aquarium fishes, but even fish that would never see a banana in their native habitat will probably enjoy eating one. Try a small portion of mashed banana, and see if your fish don't go ape over it!
