Unlike other cephalopods, the nautilus has poor vision and its primitive eyes have no lenses. #FactFriday #CephalopodWeek

Reppin' gang colors for @scifri 's #CephalopodWeek 🐙🦑 [ club patch by @ohplesiosaur ]

It’s the end of the weekend and you may want to camouflage away from predators or Monday, but fear not because #CephalopodWeek continues! And don't forget, it's always a cephaloparty in our Tentacles special exhibition 🐙🦑 #cephari #cephwisdom #montereybayaquarium

Happy #CephalopodWeek! Today we're taking a look at the Museum's giant squid.
The Museum’s specimen is a sexually mature male that measures 25 feet long, with eyes that are 6 inches across. The giant squid’s arms and tentacles are dotted with rows of sharp-toothed suckers, with which the animal can grab its prey.
Click the link in our profile and watch a video about how the Museum got its elusive specimen in 1998.

As #cephalopodweek comes to a close, we take a look back at @squidtoons scientific illustrations on "The Cephalopoda Family Tree." Squidtoons is a science + comics website run by Scripps and #UCSD students. Visit squidtoons.com for more info 🦑🐙

This is really cool! The #Ocean never ceases to amaze. 🎥 by @williamdrumm - "What better way to show you how cool cephalopods are, than to show you an octopus changing color and shape right before your eyes?!"

This animal is called an octopus squid (Octopoteuthis sicula). Why is this squid named after an octopus? Adults have eight arms, like octopuses, instead of ten, like squids. But newly hatched octopus squids have ten arms, like this one does. During growth, two arms will degenerate and disappear. 🦑

Check out this giant Pacific octopus that was spotted in NOAA Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary​! This footage was taken from a recent research cruise with Marine Applied Research and Exploration - MARE​ using remotely operated vehicles. The octopus was in Santa Cruz Canyon off the Channel Islands, at about 100 meters below the surface!

The nifty nautilus gets around using jet propulsion! By expelling water from its mantle cavity through a siphon, it propels through the ocean, changing the direction of its siphon to “steer.” Look out, ceph coming through! #CephalopodWeek #nautilus #montereybayaquarium #animalradical #oceans #Tiffieldtwins2 #regrann

A bit late for #cephalopodweek , but here is a stack of cuddling pyjama squid! They're actually cuttlefish, although their name suggests otherwise. Inspired by a photo from Monteray Bay Acquarium, although I changed some of the squids. Swipe to see the doodle on a phone case, tote, duvet, and more!
