If this is indeed a happy note in a time of generally bad news for marine life, I for one welcome our new cephalopod
Led by James Pikul and Robert Shepherd, the team's pneumatically-activated material takes a cue from the 3D bumps, or papillae, that cephalopods
can express in one-fifth of a second for dynamic camouflage, and then retract to swim away without the papillae imposing hydrodynamic drag.
This exciting and extremely rare intertidal encounter has prompted a formal report on the sighting and also an overview of the biology of this species and of cephalopods
