At first I did not id the sponge as a sponge and was afraid it was a frog fish or some other creature that was going to eat the cuttle like the last film you made use watch (and continues to crop up :wink:).

Interesting coloration, how did you id the cuttle?

Beautiful body patterning. Sometimes it is difficult to identify the functions of body patterns that seem nothing but aesthetic.

I just read the comments... although I am questioning that ID - it may be Sepia mestus, but as always, cephalopods are difficult to ID from photos/videos alone...
