Hypnosis Attack!!

Like their other cephalopod cousins, cuttlefish exhibit exceptional control of their chromatophores—the color-changing pigments in their skin.

Here, this broadclub cuttlefish (Sepia latimanus) appears to ‘hypnotize’ its prey with a dazzling, oscillating display, before striking with a pair of lightning-quick tentacles.
