The Cuttlefish are becoming endangered due to our growth in population. They are considered a delicious food to eat in most of Asia and Europe. We humans enslave these animals in tanks thinking it is right to use them as pets. This mollusk is a complex animal; instead of adjusting its lenses to focus it has the ability to reshape its entire eye! The Cuttlefish has only one bone, which is named the cuttlebone hence the name. Due to its soft skin it relies on its camouflage as well as its ink sac.
