[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an image of a cuttlefish taken in the Perhentian Islands, Malaysia. Cuttlefish are sometimes referred to as the chameleon of the sea for their amazing ability to rapidly change their skin colors and patterns. These changes in skin patterns are used for communication between cuttlefish and to evade predation. Cuttlefish are among the most intelligent invertebrates. Cuttlefish generally range in size from 15 to 25 cm. They feed on small fish, small mollusks, crabs, shrimp, octopus, worms, and other cuttlefish. They are preyed upon by dolphins, sharks, fish, seals, and other cuttlefish.
