[Richtlijnen voor opmerkingen] Opmerking van de fotograaf
I took this photo during a night dive while on a Live-a-Board on the Great Barrier Reef.

Recent studies indicate that cuttlefish are among the most intelligent invertebrate species. Cuttlefish have an internal shell (cuttlebone), large W shaped eyes, and eight arms and two tentacles furnished with suckers, with which they secure their prey.

There are over 120 species of cuttlefish currently recognized - grouped into 5 genera.

Dear Margo
I have seen many cuttle fish, but nothing as spectacular as the one in your photo.
The notes are very interesting, thank you and I add your work to my theme "under and above the seas and lakes"

Best wishes
Ingrid
