I was searching google for pictures of S. Apama, and found a pretty cool site with nice photos of different spieces. There are also some videos. S. Latimanus walks on the bottom like A. Aculeatus does. It's even cooler to see a cuttle do it than an octo, I think. The link is direct to S. Latimanus; the one with videos. I haven't looked at all of them but out of the 3 or 4 I did look at this was the only one with videos.

Oddly, I don't see a description for S. Apama ^^;.

Great site find! The walking cuttle reminds me a lot of the Flamboyant's strut in Thales' video.
