A Family of flamboyant cuttle fish happened along, marching in a single file. Upon my approach, Mama & papa took off leaving baby to fend for himself. At first he was all flowery and splashing me with a kaleidescope of colors. But I did not move a muscle. Then it started this little jig like it was dancing to hip hop... "check it to the right- half time!" and it began to lift and swim upwards. Very impressive, until I learned that this is the 2nd most toxic animal in the ocean!
