Happy #Friday! There’s nothing common about this cuttlefish: the common cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis)  uses its skin to communicate—flashing stripes and patches of color convey threats or courtship messages. We’ve raised generations of them at the Aquarium.

On exhibit in Tentacles!

    I don’t know why but I’ve always had an affiliation towards cuttlefish, despite never having met one in person. Perhaps...
