P.Z. Myers has long had an Anti-Caturday post coming up every Saturday (more or less) to combat the ubiquity of cat images on that day. Today I would like to join the fray simply because I myself am firmly a dog person.

Meet the Cuttlefish (Sepia Officinalis). It’s an incredibly cool cephalopod; it changes the colour of its skin for camouflage and communication. But what’s more Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and University of Washington researchers have found that their skin contains gene sequences usually only found in eyes! Now how cool is that? Tell me that’s not better than a kitten.
