Don't miss our Cuttlefish, renowned for being able to change their skin pattern in less than one second, to the best possible colour combination to blend in with any background, are also featured.


The final new arrival is the most prehistoric member of the octopus family, the nautilus. This octopus-in-a-shell has barely changed in more than 500 million years. The spiral-shaped ‘ammonites’ regularly unearthed by fossil-hunters are its ancient relatives. The nautilus’s spiral shell is made up of a series of different sized chambers. To move higher up in the water column it fills some of those chambers with its own bodily gases. To move down again it expels those gases with water.
