Talk about your Harry Potter invisibility cloaks, these camouflage experts are extraordinary. The ocean is replete with inner space wonders like this. Marine studies teachers help students make the link between keeping our oceans healthy for these relatives of the seasnail and the intrinsic spin-off benefit for us -- ensuring our own survival. Teachers and students can marvel at more amazing cuttlefish clips here
Many thanks to our colleague Alex Gaut at the Coast and Marine branch of the Conservation Council of South Australia (CCSA) who directed us to have a look at the Amazing cuttlefish transformations page and for the CCSA's excellent community science/education projects like Reef Watch (to name just one).
