Clip Description

Along with octopuses and squids, cuttlefish are part of the cephalopod family. They are intelligent invertebrates with large brains, tentacles for catching prey and arms for handling food. Cuttlefish are masters of disguise. Despite being colour blind, they have very good eyesight, and they have the ability to change their colour, shape and movement quickly to camouflage themselves or to communicate with others.

In this fascinating clip, we will see a cuttlefish preying on a tasty crab. Will the cuttlefish be able to use its incredible colour-changing ability to hypnotise it, or will a sneaky shark scupper its plans? Watch the clip to find out.
