Beautiful Biology

CreatureCast – Passing Cloud from Casey Dunn on Vimeo.

I love the creative and artistic videos from CreatureCast.  They do a fantastic job of blending beautiful aesthetics with cool biology.  Their most recent video focuses on the display behavior of Australian Giant Cuttlefish (Sepia apama).  Like its name suggests, the Australian Giant Cuttlefish is the largest species of cuttlefish, weighing up to 25 lbs., and can be found in the waters off of the southern coast of Australia. Below is a real life clip of the Passing Cloud Pattern described in the CreatureCast video.
