Cuttlefish Camoflage

Although this blog is dedicated to octopuses, cuttlefish are closely related to octopuses. Both are cephalopods. Like octopuses, cuttlefish are able to quickly change the color and texture of their skin in order to blend in with the environment.

This cuttlefish, found on the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, changes color once it realizes it has been spotted.
