Mourning Cuttlefish
(Sepia plangon)
This small cuttlefish species is recognisable by the two darker spots on its back. Normally these cuttlefish are red or dark purple, but as soon as they are spotted they are able to change their looks rapidly. Quite often they are found in pairs, but this one was by itself.
