Check out SEA LIFE Kansas City’s Newest Creature: The Flamboyant Cuttlefish

Happy Sunday, Kansas City! One of our KC’s treasures is the aquarium at Sea Life Kansas City. It’s a great place to have educational fun, look at sea creatures, and experience the heart of Crown Center. SeaLife is introducing a new creature to their Shipwreck Exhibit — the Deadly Flamboyant Cuttlefish. Check out below for a little more information on this fascinating sea life creature!

Check out SEA LIFE Kansas City’s Newest Creature:
The Flamboyant Cuttlefish

 

SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium is committed to Breed, Rescue and Protect marine life. The SEA LIFE team recently bred the stunning cuttlefish species, known for their flamboyant coloring and lightning-fast predatory prowess.

The baby cuttlefish will be officially introduced into SEA LIFE on Wednesday, February 8th, 2017. They will be joining the Shipwreck exhibit, which highlights animals that live along coral reefs in ocean waters.

 

Flamboyant cuttlefish are notable for their ability to change color from pink, yellow, black and white as well as their swift hunting style that makes the species unforgettable to witness. Cute and cunning cephalopods, the cuttlefish have eight arms and two feeding tentacles that are used to prey on unsuspecting creatures on the sea floor.

As for visitors wondering about the flamboyant cuttlefish species, SEA LIFE Aquarist, Brittany Stopp, is happy to answer questions about these curious-looking creatures.

 

“Habitat destruction is the biggest concern facing these beautiful animals,” Stopp says. “Flamboyant cuttlefish are a highly distinctive species of cuttlefish due to their vibrant coloration. Like octopuses, squid and other cuttlefish, Flamboyant cuttlefish can camouflage to their environment as well as display colors such as: black, white, yellow and pink. They are found in the Indo-Pacific in mudflats and sandy areas.”

 

Stopp helped breed and rear this generation of cuttlefish at SEA LIFE Kansas City. When hatched, the cuttlefish were no larger than a grain of rice!
