Eggs of Flamboyant Cuttlefish are usually glued in crevices under rocks and old sea shells. We saw several clusters of the eggs over several days of diving on the same dive site at Chocolate Island. In the pic, there are 3 eggs with fully developed embryos, and they were swimming inside the egg and already able to change colours.
First sighting during this particular trip, we saw them hatched but was not able to capture the moment of the hatching, it was kind of frustrating then. 2 days later, during a night dive, we found the cluster of eggs again and this time, I decided to wait patiently to try to capture the moment of birth, as shown in the video here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIgdMyRn...
