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).

Species Profiles


Tip of the Month:

That some fish, like snakeheads of the genus Channa, can drown? Some species are so dependent on breathing air to supplement their gill respiration that if they are prevented from reaching the surface of the water, they will die from lack of oxygen.
