Cuttlefish: The Kings of Camouflage

EBRPL Cool, EBRPL Homepage Feature, EBRPL Website

Cuttlefish are cousins to the squid – they’re tube-shaped with tentacles on one end.  They are a little different from squid, though.  Cuttlefish can change color, putting on laser-like flashing displays right on their skin.  They can also re-shape themselves!!  A cuttlefish can go from smooth-skinned to spiky in the blink of an eye.

To see these fascinating displays, check out this great companion site for Nova’s documentary on cuttlefish, Cuttlefish:  The Kings of Camouflage. You’ll see some truly amazing footage of these colorful underwater mimics.  It’s really awesome!!
