He’e (octopus, tako)

In Hawaii, octopuses are called he’e (in Hawaiian, with a glottal stop between the two e’s) and tako (the Japanese word for it) and if we are lucky, we see them when diving. Deeply intelligent, they have multiple ways to defend themselves – black ink, camouflage, even squirting water. (There’s more about them in our dec 2014 blog) We enjoy their company on dives for both playfulness and inventiveness – even when very small these wonderful creatures will pull themselves up to size to intimidate a photographer!
