You all know how much I love cephalopods so I'm celebrating. So where has my obsession gone since last year? Well I'm still making Perma-Pets and now I have the Cuttlefish Jewelry to add to the mix as well as Ammonite Jewelry celebrating fossil cephalopods.
So since people ask on occasion why I like cuttlefish so much (everyone knows squid and octopus) here's a list of the cool things about cuttlefish:
- Cuttlebones for buoyancy
- Many species have amazing skin changing abilities
- Some cuttlefish even hypnotize their prey with a flashing skin pattern
- Green-blue blood
- W-shaped pupils
- Pfeffer's Flamboyant Cuttlefish's muscles contain a powerful toxin
You can find my cephalopod art and jewelry both on my eCrater StoreEtsy Shop.
