cuttlefish are amazing creatures! here’s some footage of one of the resident australian giant cuttlefish (sepia apama) at bass point, shellharbour. it changes not just colour, but also forms seaweed-like appendages on its back to blend in with its new environment.
these three screengrabs from the video above show how much it changed in less than 30 seconds:
an impressive feat of camouflage, right?
filmed with a gopro hero 5 black and an archon D32VR dive light.
