The first of several hundreds of baby O. bimaculoides have finally hatched out of their egg capsules. The second they hatch, the baby larvae squirt ink and dash to any piece of rock or shell for shelter. Overall, approximately a dozen have hatched. They appear to be very active and display an interesting behavior: raising their two front tentacles towards any approaching figure, possibly as a warning sign. If the intruder does not back off, the baby octopus squirts ink and jets off.
