Australian Giant Cuttlefish Sepia apama

Giant cuttlefish breed in winter and then mostly die off at 1-2 years of age, so not many around this time of year, found this one at Bare Island, maybe half grown, it put on quite a display for me before swimming off.   Water temperature was around 16°C.

My, what an interesting creature! As usual, you take us to a different world. What an amazing eye. The environment with matching oranges really enhances this. So well presented!
