Australiana #2 – Cephalopods

I’m an immensely big fan of cephalopods (octopus, squid and cuttlefish) and Sydney Aquarium gave me a really good ceph-fix.

This squid was a highlight of the trip. It was hauntingly beautiful, exuding both grace and intelligence. Anyone care to take a stab at the species?

    “Species” is hard for me … but its a Caribbean Reef Squid? Great video … so beautiful and so unique!

    That is an amazing video clip: it’s fun to watch them swim. And see how big it is.
