Cephalopods (squids and octopuses) have been making ink for millions of years. A squirt of ink into the water to confuse predators and make their escape has been a cephalopod survival strategy that’s unique in the animal kingdom.

Many species are masters of mimicry and camouflage because they have an unparalleled ability to change the color of their skin. Check out our series of eight cephalopod inspired inks.
