Cuttlefish
are among the most remarkable of cephalopods, but nobody expected the creatures to have this particular trick up their sleeve. Cuttlefish can actually see information in the angle of intense polarized light that we can barely comprehend.

Long ago I asked if polarized vision could be the answer to color matching ability. The thought at the time was that there was no relationship of color (seen through rods and cones) and polarization. Now it looks like there might be more of a relationship than was thought :thumbsup:
