Cuttlefish

Cuttlefish or cuttles are marine animals of the order Sepiida. They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses. Cuttlefish have a unique internal shell, the cuttlebone. Despite their name, cuttlefish are not fish but molluscs.

Cuttlefish are able to change the color, texture, and shape of their skin. They do this in order to ward off predators, mate, or camouflage themselves. Cuttlefish are extremely smart creatures. Sometimes, a small male will appear to be a female cuttlefish. While larger males fight over females, the smaller, disguised male will sneak up to the female and mate with her. The female can later also mate with the wining male. Then, she can chose brain or brawn.
