Fast Facts: Cuttlefish – Part I

Carl Kerby

Welcome to Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope. I’m Carl Kerby, and this week we’re talking about the cuttlefish.

If you’ve never heard of such a critter, you’re not alone! Although it has “fish” in its name, the cuttlefish is actually a tropical mollusk that’s related to the squid and the octopus.

The cuttlefish has eight arms — just like the octopus. It also has two tentacles, two fins, a dense cuttlebone shell, a very sharp beak, and large protruding eyes (its pupils are shaped like the letter “W”). Scientists divide the cuttlefish into more than 100 species.

Fact is, did you know that the cuttlefish can grow to be HUGE.  How huge you ask?  That’s such a good question that we’ll answer . . . next time.

The most important thing to remember today is that God made this peculiar creature just like He made you and me!  Praise God!

Join us next time for more Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope. Until then, stay bold!
