Squids in Striped Pyjamas

Cuttlefish wear their shells on the inside? Probably safer. Pyjama squids are squids of a stripe, undeniably pretty. Zebra stripes developed to keep stinging flies away and not for camouflage, as shown clearly by this squishy dumpling. I love their W eyes, or is it an upside-down M?

Together with the blue-ringed octopus and Pfeffer’s flamboyant cuttlefish, S. lineolata is suspected to be one of the few venomous cephalopods.

Get yours to cuddle!
