Flamboyant Cuttlefish – Amazing Feeding
Metasepia pfefferi

 

Flamboyant Cuttlefish are one of the stars on the underwater world. Beautiful creatures to watch, as they display wonderful shifting colours. They are also relatively unconcerned by divers, allowing close interactions.

This video shows an amazing capture of the cuttlefish extending its two feeding arms independently, rather than pushing them out together to feed. I have never seen this behaviors before and I managed to film it in slow motion. You can see this behavior at around 2.32 minutes into the clip.

I have also narrated this video.
