Did you know?

  • Cuttlefish are colour blind. They have ‘w’ shaped pupils which are thought to allow them to see both behind and in front at the same time.
  • Cuttlefish are not actually a fish. They are a cephalopod (Greek for ‘head-foot’), and their feet, or tentacles actually connect to their head rather than their body.

  • Cuttlefish have blue blood, 3 hearts, 8 arms and 2 feeding tentacles.
