Whyalla, South Australia
Imagine a creature that has three hearts, blue blood, and the ability to alter its appearance… Hundreds of thousands of giant Australian cuttlefish (Sepia apama) gather each winter from May to August in the shallow waters of South Australia’s Upper Spencer Gulf for their once-in-a-lifetime spawning event to mate and perpetuate the species. There are very few creatures in the animal kingdom that are so complex, so unique and so alien to us.

تخيّل كائناً بثلاثة قلوب، دمه أزرق وقادر على تغيير مظهره ... مئات الآلاف من الحبار الأسترالي العملاق تتجمّع كل شتاء بين شهري مايو وأغسطس في المياه الضحلة لخليج سبنسر الأعلى في جنوب أستراليا لمرةٍ واحدة - وذلك سعياً للتزاوج والتكاثر منعاً من انقراض هذه الأنواع. تزخر مملكة الحيوانات بالكائنات المعقّدة وغير المألوفة.
