Cuttlefish are actually not fish at all. They are mollusks. They can change their color and patterns to suit the environment in which they happen to be. Cuttlefish live it tropical areas in shallow waters. They are a very smart species. They are related to the squid, but not nearly as fast. They are carnivorous and great at using their 10 arms to capture their prey. Cuttlefish, like the squid, can eject a dark cloud of ink when attacked that can allow them to escape from their attacker.
Looks like this little guy above could be in for a big surprise!!!
Until next time.
