Caption

Papuan cuttlefish (Sepia papuensis) under soft coral (Xenia sp.). Cuttlefish change colour according to thier 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 the coast of Rincah Island, Indonesia.
