CUTTLE FISH

First thing that I want you to know is, cuttle fish are not fish, ps. do not get this confused. They are part of the cephalopod family like squid and octopus. Cuttle fish have a very wavy skirt that they use to swim and they have a tube called a syphon. They use the syphon to vomit out water to move faster. Their brain is bigger than their body. Their eyes are shaped like Charlie Brown’s mouth. They are colorblind and are very good at changing color even though they don’t know it. They feed on small fish and smaller cuttle fish by using their two feeding tentacles to grab the prey and putting it in their beak. Yes everyone, they have a beak. Their defenses include using ink and mucus. I close off with talking about their eggs. Their eggs are called seagrapes. I believe cuttle fish are amazing animals. I hope u do too and enjoy the picture below.
