Now, This Is An Intelligently Designed Cuttlefish

From the good people at Cuttlefish Country (I’ve written about them and their work before), a LEGO cuttlefish! (pic, and more, after the jump:)

This model is highly poseable, with many special features built into the design. Each movement is based on the actual movement of the Giant Australian Cuttlefish, Sepia apama.

1. Head tilts downwards & pivots
2. Eyes tilt upwards
3. Eyebrows turn
4. Tentacles spread & tilt
5. Feeding tentacles extend*

*The feeding tentacles consist of a grab jaw and extension arm (seen in top image, grabbing the baby crab) which can be retracted and concealed beneath the animal’s outer tentacles.

More pics and more info at the link; they want your votes and support, and while I might be a bit biased, I think they have a wonderful cause!

    Thanks for your kind words and encouragement, cuttle-friend! Incidentally the documentary feature film is getting very close. We’ll be back in touch when release dates firm up :)

    I want batteries and a light show with all of those colored bits.
