    And speaking of camouflage, I think that the critter shown isn’t trying to hide at all, but is displaying a zebra stripe mating display. I think. For a while I thought it might be an example of a Turing pattern, but colleagues in my (marine biology) lab poured scorn on that idea. Pretty, ‘though.

    I’ve tried a couple of times, but I STILL can’t see the second one. If there’s no bigger pic, can anyone tell me where it is? It’s driving me nuts.

    Do young cuttlefish have to be able to seem their own skin, in order to learn which cameflouge pattern best matches the background? Seems to me that’s an interesting question. I’m not sure how you would test it.
