I have been fascinated by the incredible speed in which cephalopods can alter their colour, which led me to investigate the common squid.
Common squid belong to a class of marine molluscs called cephalopods. Cephalopods are able to control their colour expression through the use of pigment filled sacs at the centre of radial muscles. It is the constriction and relaxation of these muscles which allow these species to alter their appearance.
I have used sequin, pipe cleaners, netting, felt and wee googly eyes for my common squid. It is 20cm.
