Diver Watches Cuttlefish Camouflage Into Its Surroundings

Nature is so fascinating. There is no other way to say it. Nature just has a way of blowing your mind with how incredible it is.

Every single animal serves a purpose within a very delicate ecosystem. But even more than that, it seems almost like very single animal has a superpower of its own.

Some animals can move really quickly, others seem to exhibit powerful strength. There are some animals who can hear, see, or smell very well. And then there are the animals that can camouflage.

The camouflage ability is one that is very fascinating, especially amongst marine animals. We’ve seen videos of certain marine animals that look like they’re a part of their environment, and here is another.

In a very interesting twist, a diver was enjoying the Indonesian waters off Kota Ambon, according to ViralHog. It was there that they managed to spot a cuttlefish swimming along.

Cuttlefish are in the same family as the octopus, so they’ve got the ability to camouflage themselves, and that is exactly what this cute little guy was doing.

In the video footage, the cuttlefish was actively camouflaging itself as it swam along, blending into the various underwater flora in the surrounding waters. It was so amazing, the diver just had to record.

According to ViralHog, the diver stated, “How I can be amazed by this cuttlefish when I saw it show me how it can use camouflaged colors to hide itself.”
