Giant Cuttlefish

 
Introduction:

Cuttlefishes are often described as the 'chameleons of the sea'.

Identification:

Using cells known as chromatophores, the Giant Cuttlefish can put on spectacular displays, changing colour in an instant. By raising parts of its skin, it can also change shape and texture to imitate rock, sand or seaweed. These displays have various interpretations to other marine creatures and may be used for camouflage, mating or even hypnotising prey.

Size:

1 m

Distribution:

The Giant Cuttlefish is found in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and parts of Tasmania, to
Ningaloo, Western Australia.

Habitat:

Giant Cuttlefish live in coastal waters, oceans, estuaries and seagrass.
