The broadclub cuttlefish, which inhabit the waters of Indonesia, can change the color and texture of their skin, just like the rest of its cuttlefish brethren. However, the broadclub is unique in that it will put on dazzling displays of flashing lights in order to stun its prey. It is truly a sight to behold. If you are planning a dance night at the hottest nightclub in town, be sure to invite the broadclub cuttlefish.

Think that the broadclub is all fun and no substance? Think again. Cuttlefish, along with octopuses, have the largest brain/body ratio among invertebrates. This is the brain responsible for sending electrical impulses that control the 20 million color cells in the cuttlefish’s skin.
