Flambuoyant Cuttlefish Eggs about to hatch!

This was an amazing experience and privilege (itís a shame the pictures donít do it justice)! We found these little eggs in an upturned 1/2 an empty coconut shell. They eggs were turning from opaque cloudy white to transparent and then the little cuttlefish would just break free and swim away. They were so so tiny but exactly the same look as a fully grown Flambuoyant cuttlefish!

The just born picture is here:
