Cool Neighbor

December 3rd, 2008

A short time ago, Sachi and I decided to visit the local aquarium. For us, it’s right down the street–we can even see it clearly from our balcony. While there, we saw lots of cool stuff, but there was one resident that I really, really liked:





I’m not fooling around with Photoshop with these colors; that’s what makes the Cuttlefish so cool. It has an amazing mechanism in its skin which allows it to change colors, patterns, and even apparently textures radically within the wink of an eye. But it has to have a reason to do so, which is why the color variations are so mild here.

Want to see it really strut its stuff? Here’s a preview of a NOVA special on the creature that’s just staggering. The preview is good, but if you can ever see the whole show, do so.
