Giant Cuttlefish Sepia apama

A Giant cuttlefish under an overhang at M&K reef at a depth of about 20m.  This reef is about 500m offshore of the Sydney suburb of Little Bay, a little north of Botany Bay heads.  This one is around 800mm long.

Only in Australia Tom, These are the world's largest cuttlefish and they only live for 2 years!
