Is the clam also a new addition?

There is something about ceph eyes that make them particularly appealing. It may be that their iris (as least I believe that is the covering over the eye) appears very much like an eyelid and gives them a land animal appearance or at least sets them apart from fish. Perhaps it is that humans use eyes to signal emotion and animals that can't change their eye shape seem less friendly.

No hunting seen yet, but the crabs seem wise to the danger and swim rapidly away. The fish are also looking slightly wary.

The clam was not new D, but was right next to Ramses so I took its photo. This crinoid was new yesterday, something I had never seen alive before. It is spectacular when it walks on its cirri up onto a high rock and unfurls its arms.

Can anyone confirm the ID of this cuttlefish? Now that I can study this one up close it will hopefully be possible to know. From the photos of the wild ones Thales thought Sepia pharaonis.
