East Pacific red octopus, ruby octopus (Octopus rubescens)

Perhaps a Red Octopus? Marlin yelled at a gull and saved its life, as it dropped it, and we were able to photograph it, and then put it in a safe place. One lucky mollusk!

Octopus rubescens (Commonly the East Pacific red octopus, also known as the ruby octopus, a preferred common name due to the abundance of octopus species colloquially known as red octopus) is the most commonly occurring shallow-water octopus on much of the North American West Coast, and a ubiquitous benthic predator in these habitats. Its range extends from the southern Gulf of California at least to the Gulf of Alaska, but may also occur in the western Pacific Ocean. O. rubescens occurs intertidally to a depth of 300 m.
