Interesting: Experiment To See If A Cuttlefish Can Camouflage Itself To Hide In A Miniature Apartment

This is a video from BBC One's 'Richard Hammond's Miracles of Nature' about cuttlefish and the techniques they use to camouflage themselves. They put one cuttlefish to the test by making a little underwater apartment and seeing how well it can blend in with its surroundings. It does okay, but it definitely wouldn't win at hide-and-seek if it had to play in that apartment. My apartment? My apartment is so small it really only has two good hiding places, and one of those is hanging from the ledge outside my bedroom window. I hid there once. The couple who live downstairs found me after I fell and they weren't even playing the game.

Hit the jump for the video, then leave a comment letting me know I'm not the only one who who thinks cuddlefish whenever they hear cuttlefish.

Thanks to I'm_Doing, who's doing something but wouldn't say what, probably because it's either top secret or really embarrassing.
