Flambuoyant Cuttlefish Just Born

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 brothers and sisters still in there eggs are here:

Oh to die for! I've been diving since 69' and yet to see something like this.
Amazing! Where were you?
