Favorite lyrics or random fact: Cuttlefish skin contains chromatophores, so it’s like a living high-definition TV. Each of their color cells are controlled by an individual neuron, allowing them to create complex color variations and patterns. They also have iridophores can create colors like metallic blue, green, gold, and silver.
