Cuttlefish Consummate ... [X-rated video]

By Leonard Ho - Posted Dec 08, 2011 09:00 AM
"With green blood, three hearts, and able to change colour in a flash, it sounds like a 'weird aliens' movie creature." That's the description provided for this excellent HD footage of cuttlefish's fascinating mating and reproductive behavior.

Khaled Sultani shares this excellent high-definition mini-documentary about the incredible reproductive behavior of the Giant Cuttlefish.  In just over two minutes of footage, you get a good peak into their mating ritual, copulation (cover your children's eyes!), and the laying and maturation of eggs.  We also learn why protecting cuttlefish from exploitation is important. The footage is absolutely beautiful (and good choice with the Daft Punk's TRON Legacy soundtrack)!

Visit our friends at (A Rich Ross approved website!) for all the information you could possibly want to read about cuttlefish and all things cephalopod.  And watch Rich Ross' highly entertaining and education presentation: "Boneless Sex: How Cephalopods Make Sweet, Sweet Love"
