In the depths of the world’s oceans, biologist and award-winning wildlife photographer Mike deGruy explores the multi-sensory world of the cephalopods.
Stunning underwater photography provides an incredible glimpse into these enigmatic invertebrates, recording species never before captured on film. Impressive footage from a remote-controlled submersible provides the first ever glimpse of two rare creatures in their natural habitat, the living fossil nautilus and the intimidating vampire squid.
Widely regarded as the most intelligent of all invertebrates, cephalopods communicate via changing colour patterns. Impressive cinematography documents these vivid displays as cuttlefish camouflage to avoid predators, and rapid pulses of colour race up and down a squid’s tentacles.
Incredible Suckers was widely acclaimed, providing an in-depth account of the behaviour and impressive abilities of this fascinating class of creatures, and it won the Underwater Revelation category at Wildscreen 1996.
