Cephalopods, those masters of deception including squids, octopus, cuttlefish, and nautiluses, are finally receiving some love and apprecition. With chemically-sensitive suckers and color-changing skins that take on the colors and textures of their marine environment, the octopuses and cuttlefish almost seem like aliens inhabitating the oceans. Some 10% of their identified genes have turned out to be completely unique and found nowhere else in the animal kingdom. Media producer, Luke Groskin, has created a video celebrating these remarkable sea creatures.
