The waters of the Spencer Gulf are simply reeking with sex at the moment, as millions of Giant Australian cuttlefish arrive for their annual breeding season.” O Australia!

I remember once having to come up with a caption for a wonderful picture of two deep sea octopuses passionately entangled. We soon realised that the octopuses were both male, and of different species. A friend of mine suggested “Bestial Sodomy in the Abyss”.
When I first saw this image out of the corner of my eye, I thought it was an orchid.
Thanks for sharing. The Friday Cephalopods are beautiful.
From Rush, to spider sex, to self-mutilation, to this…
I’m worried about you. Is the mrs. away on business? ;)

I’ve been worried about the lack of play that cuttlefish get when I visit here, and the situation has been rectified.

You can switch continents, P.Z. You move into my place and I’ll move into yours. But I’m not sure how good I’ll be at teaching your classes though. They will probably consist of me handing around my octopus balls. All the lessons will consist of disecting cephalopods and then cooking them.

Reminds me of a movie I saw when I was skipping school once in the eighth grade.
