They are also my favorite. I always wanted to go see them in real life.

Thanks ShannaB! There were 30 other photos that were horrible :P Cuttlefish are molluscs, so basically descended from snails! They are my favourite marine creatures and this was the first time I had ever seen one!

Great pic Michelle, welcome to Project Noah! I never realised before that cuttlefish aren't actually 'fish'.
