Caring for Cuttlefish – Science Friday

Fostering the successful life cycle of a cuttlefish is an intensive process. From incubating new eggs in oxygenated recycled soda bottles, to transferring them to “Cuttle Cradles,” to setting up their environments to correctly support a healthy adult lifespan, the Monterey Bay Aquarium teams are experts at caring for these intelligent invertebrates — 95% of cuttlefish spawned in their care survive into adulthood.
