Cuttlefish Camouflage Video

Loading video...

Caption: Cuttlefish, as shown in this video, have extraordinary camouflage skills. They also have light-sensing proteins distributed throughout their skin. How these proteins interact with the animal's visual system to enable instantaneous changes in skin pattern and color is a focus of Roger Hanlon's research at the MBL.
