The end of my first week

I began Friday with quite an interesting surprise, and of course I left my camera at home so I have no photographic documentation so show. I was checking on the cuttlefish and came upon two who at first glace appeared to be mating as S. officinalis mate head-to-head.

However, it turns out this was a deadly embrace instead of an amorous one. One cuttlefish decided it just couldn't deal with having another one giving it the eye, and on an empty stomach no less. All cephalopods can be cannibalists, as one discovered the hard way.
