Little Cuttlefish

ESCAPE ARTIST SUPREME

The wonderful Little Cuttlefish can be found throughout the length and breadth of Kenmare Bay.

Little Cuttlefish are one of the smallest cephalopods to be found throughout Kenmare Bay. They are masters of camouflage, changing their skin colour and tone by contracting or expanding their cells that contain pigment (chromatophores). They are attracted to dive lights at night and when threatened they shoot out ink or bury themselves. The question is, 'What amazing adaptation do they employ to completely hide themselves'?
