I was searching google for pictures of S. Apama, and found a pretty cool site with nice photos of different spieces. There are also some videos. S. Latimanus walks on the bottom like A. Aculeatus does. It's even cooler to see a cuttle do it than an octo, I think. The link is direct to S. Latimanus; the one with videos. I haven't looked at all of them but out of the 3 or 4 I did look at this was the only one with videos.

Oddly, I don't see a description for S. Apama ^^;.

Great site find! The walking cuttle reminds me a lot of the Flamboyant's strut in Thales' video.

This is pretty common for Ive observed it regularly with Bandensis and Officinalis. Ill try to collect some picture of the common things they do. Should be fun!

Yeah ditto with Dan

The sepia species quite commonly creep about using a pair of arms as legs :smile:
