The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center has shared adorable footage of an eight-armed baby octopus being born - and immediately attempting to camouflage.The aww-inducing video has now been viewed over 1.6 million times since it was posted on Wednesday.

In the 10-second video, a baby Caribbean reef octopus emerges from a strange, flowerlike sac of eggs.The octopus, which is no bigger than a pinky nail, immediately changes colors from white to purple.These creatures have the remarkable ability to camouflage themselves, despite being colorblind, due to their ability to distinguish between different hues and brightness.Caribbean reef octopuses are able to quickly change color because they use specialized muscles to open and close sacs of pigment in their skin, called chromatophores.'It was going into an instant camouflage as soon as it came out of the egg,'
