Cephalopod Camouflage

One of my favorite shows, Science Friday, airs Friday afternoon at 2 pm on my local NPR radio station. This Friday, the show ended with a discussion about the amazing abilities that squids, octopi, and cuttlefish to, within a second, camouflage themselves against various backgrounds and textures by sight, even though they are colorblind. See this amazing video that includes the interview from Science Friday's website.

(I see a bit of the right side of the video is truncated. To see the original, go to Science Friday's website here.)
