Are squids as smart as dogs?
How is it that colorblind squids can camouflage themselves with different colors? Researchers have turned to modern technology to reveal a surprisingly complex brain.
There is more to squids — which belong to the cephalopod family, with octopi and cuttlefish — than meets the eye.
They are actually able to count, solve problems, recognize patterns, and communicate through a number of signals.
Though colorblind, they are also able to instantly change colors, using different colors on their upper and lower bodies to blend into different backgrounds and attract potential mates.
