    As far as I know not in the same way. Other only other walking cuttles I know of (small ones like bandensis, etc.) use the arms, but I have never seen them use the skin. Very cool when you stop to think about it- the flamboyant cuttlefishes have make-shift limbs they can deploy and hide as needed
