Great picture, but it looks like a Caribbean Reef Squid, Sepioteuthis sepioidea, not a cuttlefish, to me.

Thanks Wolfman, I reached that same conclusion myself after a bit of research. First time I've ever seen one, and so I took a quick guess that turned out wrong.

I guess I don't understand the importance of the two photos. Am I missing something?

Mark Powell said...

Colin, no big deal, just some ocean sights that moved me. I put up the first two quickly, and followed with Akumal underwater explaining my trip. Then I had to correct an ID on the squid so it may look like a new post if you're using a feed reader.

Very nice. I remember seeing them for the first time on a dive in Belize, just hovering under the boat. Could hardly make them out against the surface of the water. Completely in the open and they were still camouflaged. Amazing.
