You must read what i had experienced in one of my divings at Koh lipe island, Thailand.

This is a true love story! I saw a female cuttlefish and chased it for a while and suddenly the brave male appeared from nowhere and starts to protect her! (If you see, female stands just behind and below of the male. In the photo just camouflaged buffish back is visible. It is clearly seen in the video. Just amazing!) I hope you can watch the short video(15 sec) on instagram. The link is below. I don't remember the exact species

Ko Lipe (Thai: เกาะหลีเป๊ะ) is an island off the Andaman Coast of Southern Thailand. It is in Satun Province, close to Langkawi Island (Malaysia), about 60 km (38 mi) from the mainland. It is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park, a large group of over 70 islands, and also part of a smaller cluster of islands called the Butang Islands or Adang Archipelago. Ko Lipe is known for diving and snorkelling, and for beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere.

Dünyada insan ırkı yok olsa yeni bir medeniyet kuracaklarına inandığım sübyeler. Dişisini görünce dalıp videoya almaya başladım ve ortalıkta başka Sübye yoktu. Derken bir anda erkek çıkageldi ve amansızca dişisini bizden uzak tuttu. Hakikaten etkileyici, örnek gösterilesi...Belgeselin ötesinde bir his yaşattı hepimize :)
