Sunny, was named after his cheery disposition and colorful mating display. The giant cuttlefish, is a resident of Australia and attains his beautiful colors trying to secure a mate, even though he is colorblind. Cuttlefish and octopuses, both members of the Cephalopod family, have extremely developed nervous systems and can sense and dream with their skin and sensitive tentacles in ways we can only imagine. Scientists still have much to learn about these primordial relatives, but now understand them to be very intelligent creatures with feelings and emotions.
