Octopus with a Rasta Hat

What kind of octopus wears a rasta hat? And why can't I be that diver?

Come on, you cephalopodophiles, identify this one for me. There are between 650-700 species of cephalopods in the world, roughly a third of which are octopi (octopuses, octopodes). Can you at least narrow it down?

Get up, swim up: don't give up the fight!
SCUBAman, don't tell me
Heaven is in the sea
I know you don't know
What life is really worth
It's not all that glitters is gold
'Alf the story has never been told
So now you see the light, eh!
Swim up for your rights. Come on!

I can see it now: "The dreads are supposed to go under the hat, mon!"

I believe it's just a giant octopus! The sheer size, low light conditions, and that lovely orange color seem to suggest it.

Haven't you seen the rasta octupi in Shark Tales?

Doh! My bad. I think they were rasta jellyfish.
