Congrats! This spotting has been chosen as a PN Fun Fact!

Project Noah Fun Fact: Like the green anole we posted yesterday, the cuttlefish uses color to communicate. They can go through a whole variety of colors seemingly at once. This can convey breeding condition, mood, territoriality and sex. But some males have learned how to sneak in under the tentacles of protective larger males, by mimicking the colors of the females!
