It isn’t really a fish, but a mollusk. More related to octopus and squid.

No one should know that we are trained, we look simple yet always alert.

Shoot ink to ward off predators

We learn how to attack and escape

They can camouflage with a sophisticated ability to blend

Always merge in surroundings

Hypnotise prey with bright colours

Ability to talk through most situations without getting into any fight

Ability to transform the shape of entire bodies to match surroundings

Awareness of surrounding

Large brain and very advanced eye

Always stay alert and think of the best possible way

Wonder why we call it Cuttlfish and not Cuttlefish as we do not teach what’s of no use. Hence, even without an “e”, it still remains a Cuttlfish.
