Kings of Camouflage

Have you ever seen a sea creature than can flash like a disco strobe light over its ENTIRE BODY?  :o

Watch these kings of camouflage in action. Of course they can blend in with their surroundings to trap prey but when they DON'T want to blend, such as when they mate or when they want to "mesmerize" their prey, they can put on quite a show!   

It turns out they are extremely intelligent too. This drives scientists up a wall because a short lived creature such as this one doesn't seem to have had the time to "evolve" such high order thinking. This creature, as you will see above. has demonstrated the ability to learn quite quickly and adjust its behavior accordingly..

I AGREE    that this wonder of the ocean, the cuttlefish, certainly DID NOT have time to "evolve".  ;)

There is even a teeny tiny species of cuttlefish that puts on a show ALL the time instead of trying to hide. Scientists discovered why it is so seemingly fearless. It's quite pretty too. Enjoy the show!
