        Camouflaging Cuttlefish

        Learn how a cuttlefish uses colored pigments in its skin to blend perfectly with its surroundings in this video from NATURE: Natural Born Hustlers. Cuttlefish can not only expand and contract the muscles that contain these pigments on their skin to match surroundings (just like the octopus); they can also morph the texture of their skin to match the plants or objects they are hiding in—despite being colorblind.
