A friend just sent me the link to Creaturecast Episode 1 (on Creaturecast.org), which explains Loligo's (or perhaps now Doryteuthis' ... can't keep them straight) ability to change color and iridescence. It's quite nicely done and well explained (although the narrator sounds remarkably like a character from True Blood - but she plays the musical saw, so we'll forgive her!).
