I just learned that there's a place in California called Cinder Cone and the Fantastic Lava Beds… which is now the name of my new band.

Flamboyant cuttlefish (Metasepia pfefferi)

This cuttlefish was stunning, constantly pulsing and changing color as it puttered along the sand. In the wild, flamboyant cuttlefish will use their chromatophores for camouflage while hunting, and will pulse and flash bright, hypnotic patterns when idle or threatened. This color display isn’t just for show — as one of only three known toxic cephalopods, researchers suspect this coloration advertises its deadly muscle tissue.

A decade ago, you could only find flamboyant cuttlefish in the wild. Within the past few years, aquarists at Monterey Bay have cultured and raised generations of flamboyant cuttlefish for research and public viewing. In addition, Monterey distributes these cuttlefish to other marine institutions to continue their studies without depleting the wild population.

…today I learned about cuttlefish.

Embrace the glare

Last weekend at Heart Lake. We scrambled up the crest of a ridge just in time to catch the sun setting over the hills.

Zoe is such a beach dog. After swimming after her ball for a solid half hour, she rolled around and covered herself in sand 🏖🐶
