0 page


The Cephalopods are Mollusks, like clams and nudibranchs. The Class Cephalopoda includes Octopuses, Squids, Cuttlefishes and Chambered Nautiluses. These are invertebrate marine animals that are intelligent and carnivorous. Cephalopoda means "head foot" and the group has the most complex brain of any invertebrate.

Kathy and Mike Schnetzer's wonderful short film includes footage of numerous species of Cephalopods found off the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, including the deadly Bluering Octopus and the fascinating Wunderpus. Some great behavioral footage, including mating, hatching, and predation.

This film was an official selection of the 2005 San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition, and one of the audience favorites. To learn more about Kathy and Mike Schnetzer's work and their Lionfish Films, LLC, please check out their website:
