On January 5, 2019 in Manado, Indonesia, diver stumbles across big group of cuttlefish. Diver explains the events by saying, “This video was taken in the house reef of Tasik Ria Manado. A group of 8 cuttlefishes was spotted there. They were changing the color of their tentacles and also a smaller cuttlefish approaching a larger one with something that looks like a mating dance.”
A very special moment to capture on camera. A more funny looking species of fish in all different sizes and colors. As well, he even got the chance to capture what a mating dance looks like for cuttlefish. Being this close to that many cuttlefish could end badly for a diver like this. Like octopuses and some squid, cuttlefish are venomous. The muscles of the cuttlefish contain a highly toxic compound. Although cuttlefish rarely encounter humans, their poison is considered extremely toxic.
You may think they are funny looking and cute, until they get a hold of you with that toxic compound and you are wishing you never got that close. Luckily for the diver in this video, nothing ended up going wrong for him and it was a successful shoot!
