Squid and Octopus; Cephalopoda

Squid and Octopus are the most sophisticated of all the molluscs. They are Chaloklum Diving all-time favourites and often seen on scuba dives around Koh Phangan. Totally fascinating creatures…

First seen hovering next to a Sea Pen; later found lurking on an algae... VERY small.

A small and fascinating creature. Great for underwater photography if you're patient!

These photos are the result of 20 minutes spent watching an octopus and a passing cuttlefish.

Not a juvenile, this is as big as they get...

Smaller, stumpy and more cautious than the reef cuttlefish.

A.k.a. Broadclub Cuttlefish. An intelligent beast - fascinating to meet underwater. They can change colour from a pale white to a dark brown camouflage in seconds.

You are lucky when you have a chance to see such a display.

The original foundation of the fishing industry of Chaloklum and Koh Phangan but not often seen when diving.
