Above is a picture of a Cuttlefish (Sepia Officinalis). The Juniorette and I saw a couple of these whilst snorkeling during our recent holiday to Crete. These aliens of the sea are fantastic creatures, they are very intelligent and can change colour rapidly. It is believed that they can communicate with each other using the rapidly changing coloured patterns that they exhibit when in communal groups.
In German the cuttlefish is known as the Sepia, but most people I have spoken to have never heard of or seen a Cuttlefish/Sepia. It is closely related to the Octopus and Squid.
Well at least Mrs. Haddock will now know what we are taking about when the Juniorette and I recount our snorkeling adventures............and there ends the lesson for today.
Only another 6 hours of this night shift do.........zzzzz
