Arm length is only about 4 inches so probably a juvenile octopus. This one was dark brownish-red. It's a highly variable species and color can vary from deep brick red to brown, to white, or mottled mixtures of the three.
Spotted at the Point Loma Tide Pools in San Diego. Occurs intertidally to a depth of 300 m.
