[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.

Hermosa imagen.
Esta es uno de los animales marinos más sorprendente. Su capacidad de mimetizarse es asombrosa y sus coloridos son espectaculares. La imagen permite ver unos colores espectaculares en el manto del animal.
Linda fotografía, buena nitidez, buenos colores
