    For all you cuttlefish experts - Do cuttlefish produce different types of ink like some cephalopods do? Do they just release the "smoke screen" style of ink or the more mucus filled "pseudomorph" style that holds its form to mimic an animal.
    Thanks!

    Depends on the species of cuttle. S. bandensis does both.
