Caption: Cuttlefish (order Sepiida, upper centre and lower centre) camouflaged against sea squirts (centre and bottom). Cuttlefish change colour according to their surroundings by dilating or contracting pigment cells called chromatophores. Rhythmic bands of colour are quickly pulsed along the body and arms, possibly to mesmerise and distract its prey. Cuttlefish feed on small molluscs, crabs, shrimp and fish. Photographed off Mabul, Sabah, Malaysia.
