    Hi everyone, this is my first post here: nice site!

    I have seen an older t.v. programme, I can't remember what it was, but it had the best footage I've ever seen of a cuttlefish changing color. The cuttle was hovering above a shrimp and began an elaborate color changing display that eventually "hypnotized" the shrip, who, after witnessing the display, looses his "grip" on the floor and floats up towards the cuttlfish, who promptly eats him (of course :razz: )...

    If anyone knows the title of this show, has a copy of it (or the clip), or has any other information about this footage, I'd love to hear from you... :grin:

    Thanks for any help, and keep up the great site!

    Do you mean the episode called "Aliens from Outer Space" from the BBC 1 series - Wildlife on One?

    This has a scene in exactly how you describe.

    I only know becuase I have was very kindly loaned a copy from a friend.

    That sounds like an apt title...It also featured some strange life forms like a crab that "shoots" bubbles at its prey...

    It's been so long since I've seen it...

    Thanks a lot, now I know what to look for!

    Anyone knowing how or where one can procure a copy of this programme??

    Thanks again... :wink:
