Watch out for the tentacles! Pharaoh #cuttlefish have eight short arms with two long tentacles neatly tucked in the middle--ready to unfurl and snatch prey.

Need a cool image to enliven your computer desktop? How about this cock-eyed squid?

Can't stop watching this strolling cephalopod? Don't be fooled by its delicate movement--the mimic octopus can easily scare off potential predators. In a flash, this master of mimicry changes its color and shape to hover like a lethal lionfish or slither like a poisonous sea snake.

    See them *if* you can find them. Their camouflage is AMAZING! :)
