Cephalopods are one group of mollusks, and there are about different types of cephalopods. The main types are octopuses, squids, cuttlefishes, and nautiluses. This book helps readers learn about cephalopods' bodies and life cycle, where they live, how they sense the world, what they eat, and more. Additionally, an iridescent dermal tissue can also be manipulated by some cephalopods to aid in camouflage, courtship rituals, or accompany color changes. Some pelagic squids possess an additional color-changing structure; the light organ. A pair of these light organs is located within the mantle cavity on the underside of the squid.
