Cuttling with the Fishes

Posted by on April 30, 2012

Is it some sort of alien? A destruction-portending nightmare sent to bring our very civilization to an end?

No, its a cuttlefish. It kind of looks like that first though, doesn’t it?

I’ve seen these things three of four times while snorkeling around the Pacific Ocean, and I always sit and watch them for a while as one of the strangest looking creatures I’ve found underwater. In particular, their method of locomotion… that wavy little ring around the bottom… really kind of freak me out.

    Sure glad you explained about that creature. I was wondering if that thing was attached or if it was just something in the area. I saw it the other night when I was looking at the video you put up for me. Love N

    Dude, they are definitely strange, beautiful little critters. Can’t believe I got to see that one with you in Malaysia. So damn cool.

      They’re weird little monsters, but I could easily drift for hours watching them fly their creepy little wings through the ocean.
