This Octopus have very long tentacles, hence its name. They are not too colorful although can be very well camouflaged among the sandy bottom. When they swims, they tends to take on the shape of flounders (flat fishes) as a form of mimicry and occasionally, they opens up the webbing around their tentacles as show in the pictures.
Shallow reefs, especially sandy bottom where they can be well camouflage. They usually lives in holes on the sandy bottoms and they can easily dig and squeeze their body into the sands.
