Cuttlefish have a tongue much like a chameleon’s. It can extend up to the entire length of its own body.
Aside from the cuttlebone, the beak is the only other solid body-part inside the cuttlefish.
The Broadclub cuttlefish uses its colour-changing ability in a very peculiar fashion. They strobe patterns down their body to mesmerise their prey.
The pattern is referred to as ‘passing clouds’ because it seems to mimic the shadows of clouds passing overhead.
The strobing effect on its prey appears to dazzle them. Cleverly, cuttlefish seem to only use this on larger prey that may pose a challenge.
They contort their tentacles in such a way to allow them to easily circle their prey, which intensifies the 'hypnosis'.
In a blink of an eye, a cuttlefish can strike.
Skillfully blending into their environment, a cuttlefish is able to sneak up on its prey undetected.
Cuttlefish skin is like a colour television. It has a way of combining basic colours to form more complex hues and dynamic patterns.
