The Curious Life Of The Cuttlefish

Join this underwater explorer as he lets us tag along on his latest dive into the ocean at Shark Point!

Even for this experienced diver, the area can still hold some surprises! Sea cucumbers acting strange, getting close to the elusive red soldier fish, and watching a cuttlefish defend his mate are just a few of the things he’s surprised to find on this dive.

And it’s not hard to see why this dive was so surprising for him: all of these marine animals are so interesting, and he’s capturing them at such incredible moments!

What makes these animals so interesting? Well, the cuttlefish, for example, have one of the most unique sets of eyes in the animal kingdom. Their strange shaped pupils are unable to see color but are able to see the polarization of light. They reshape their whole eye in order to see better in certain situations and have a sensor that allows them to see what’s ahead of them as well as what is behind them.
