Cephalopods are the highest developed member of the mollusks; related to, for example, shells and nudibranch. The name Cephalopods comes from the Greek and means head / foot. The main members are octopus, squid and cuttlefish, but also the seldom seen nautilus and argonauts are part of it. There are over 800 different species, all marine; there are no fresh water species.

Cephalopods are often hard to determinate, also because most Cephalopods posses the ability to change color. They do that by their Chromatophores, pigment-containing and light-reflecting cells, also found in amphibians, fish, reptiles, crustaceans. Sometimes the flash of a strobe makes them change color instantly. Next to that, a lot of Cephalopods, especially squid and cuttlefish, also use Bioluminescence produced by bacterial symbionts.
