 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 02:42 PM

Cute...and possibly tasty...

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 02:43 PM

I'm pretty much in love with cephaolpods. I want to take this wittle guy home and love him forevers!

Also, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that's actually a Caribbean Reef Squid. Anybody know?

*puts crusty loaf and moostard away*

So adorable!!! *cuddles*

Cuttlefish are usually about as long as your hand, they're like mini-squids crossed with chameleons with uber color-chaing powers :D

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:05 PM

OMG! Doesn't anyone else think he/she looks like Snuffleupagus???? Too Cute!!!

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:16 PM

Yes, Renee in Texas. Yes.

I'm not in the habit of finding sea creatures cute, but this one sure is...

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:24 PM

Please don't cry, Cuttlie McCuttlesons!!! I'll cuddle you!!!

You're right, Renee, he does sort of remind me of Snuffleupagus!

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:26 PM

Awwww, we thinks he needs a hugs too!!! we invites him to come to our bloggie and we will snuggle him lots, after a little likkin and maybe a bit of bitey time...hehehe


 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:39 PM

No, that's definitely a cuttlefish.

They actually have a very wide range as far as size goes. Some are smaller than your hand, some are longer than your arm.

And while I think the picture is adorable, that's not his eyelid. Their pupils are just shaped that way.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:40 PM

Don't be a buzzkill, Karena!

hims jus sad cuz hims gots no one to cuddle wif.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:52 PM

Yayayay! A mollusc on CO! You've made my day, Meg.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:54 PM

hahaha this is awesome! My four year old son, who just melted alongside me watching the howly pup just went "Awww, I want it!"

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 03:55 PM

I have to second Carrie here; cuttlefish have amazing color switching abilities. We're talking animated hypnotic patterns swirling over their skin. Maybe if someone give him a cuddle he'd do little heart-shapes all over...

He'd be like a cuddlier version of Cthulu.

Awwww.... Reminds me of my little stuffed friend, Inky.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:07 PM

OMG, its EEYORE, swimming!

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:08 PM

Actually, several types of cephalopods can change their coloring, for camouflage purposes or for mating. Ah, widdle cuttlyfishie!

Cuttlefish are my absolute favorite invertebrates. They are so much fun to watch, hanging out with each other in a large tank, occasionally having cuttlefish arguments after which the loser goes off and sulks in a corner...

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:41 PM

If it has that little ballet tutu all around the body, it's a cuttlefish; squid don't have tutus.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:44 PM

nooobody knows the trouble i've seen....

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:51 PM

I'm so happy to see I cephalopod (sp?) on here. i thought I was the only one who thought they were cute.

OMG! Squids and 'cephies in general are my favorite animals, actually! It's awesome to see their cuteness appreciated by others! =D

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 04:51 PM

I love little cuttles, they're so sweet and wierd, even if they are ferocious predators.

Their colour changing ability is truly amazing, check out this video, particularly about 2:20 in when it starts pulsing its colours. They really are like aliens on Earth and this little one clearly needs a cuddle.

Don't bite my with your beak though!

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 05:27 PM

Oops, forgot the link to the video.

Crazy cuttlefish:


 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 05:28 PM

Add me and hubby to the cuddle-fish club. We love 'em. And jellies too. Some of fave aquarium denizens!

How do you cuddle with a cuttlefish?

I imagine holding hands is a little complicated.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 06:23 PM

I've always thought cuttlefish were the cutest cephlapods around... :'( Poor lonely baby...

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 06:34 PM

Awww, I love cuttlefish. They always look a little sad... well, except when they turn red and look mad. They have good angry eyes. :)

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 08:36 PM

hee! I've always loved cuttlefish

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 09:41 PM

aw, poor cutie. yay for cephs on cuteoverload though!

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 09:57 PM

He might actually truly want a cuddle. I remember seeing a documentary where a cuttlefish in a tank was playing with and sucking on the zookeeper's hand. They love attention, it was super cute to watch. Ever since then I've had a soft spot for the squishy little guys.

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 10:24 PM

Wow I've never wanted to cuddle a booger more in my life. That is what that thing is right? jk

 |  Aug 24, 2007 at 10:24 PM

aw! so cuttley!

(ps: what happened to the cuteoverload.com address? :/ i dunno if its just me, but that domain went to an ad, and it took me a google search to find the blog this time.)

Here's a video from Nova showing the cuttlefish-ees camouflage ability. Pretty cool! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2x-8v1mxpR0
