Argonauta nodosa aka knobby or knobbed argonaut aka "paper nautilus" is a species of pelagic octopus. The female of the species, like all argonauts, creates a paper-thin eggcase that coils around the octopus much like the way a nautilus lives in its shell (hence the name paper nautilus).

"Cuttlefish, although color-blind, are able to rapidly change the color of their skin to match their surroundings and create chromatically complex patterns, through some other mechanism which is not yet understood.
