A popular Australian themed artwork. 

“This unassuming, shy little octopus is lauded as one of the most lethal creatures of the sea. Measuring 12 – 20cm across its stretched tentacles, the Hapalochlaena lunulata, or greater blue-ringed octopus, is a small sea creature weighing between 25 – 80g. 

When resting, the octopus will look dark brown and yellow. And while they may look harmless and certainly aren’t actively aggressive, the blue-ringed octopus is highly venomous, with a bite that is poisonous to humans.  The rings only turn blue when provoked. The body will darken and its 50 – 60 rings will glow an electric blue.”
