Their average diet consists of small crustaceans such as shrimp and crabs or small fish. Their suckered covered arms are used to grasp and prevent their prey from escaping. Cuttlefish have predators too, such as sharks or humans who use Cuttlefish in cuisine in parts of Europe such as Italy and Portugal, further east in Asia, and south in the Mediterranean. This fascinating species of mollusk resides in the Mediterranean, North and Baltic Seas, Asia, and South Africa.
