Giant Cuttlefish and the Winter Garden
Giant cuttlefish (Sepia apama) are often seen and approached by swimmers and divers along the southern coast of Australia in late winter. This is the largest of all cuttlefish species, and despite being colourblind, they are masters of camouflage with the ability to change their size, shape, colour and even texture of their bodies.
