CLASH OF THE TITANS

GIANT CUTTLEFISH

SEPIA APAMA

An unexplained and dramatic giant cuttlefish decline during the winters of 2013 and 2014 raised concerns about the Spencer Gulf’s breeding aggregation. Fortunately, they returned in full force during 2015. This pair embraced at sunrise in a spectacular mating display to symbolise a secure future for this breathtaking event.
