Remarkable Footage of a Cuttlefish Camouflaging Itself In an Underwater Living Room

Cuttlefish camouflage Living Room

In an episode of the BBC One series Richard Hammond’s Miracles of Nature, the towering host explained the amazing adaptive camouflaging ability of the simple cuttlefish. He then put that ability to the test in an underwater tank designed as a typical living room. Needless to say, the flexible cephalopod more than met the challenge.

Cuttlefish survive by being able to blend into their surroundings through camouflage. Richard Hammond puts this to the test and experiments if the fish are able to camouflage in a tank set up like a living room.
