The Cuttlefish is by far my favourite Ocean Animal. It's an invertebrate that is extremely complex and, at the same time, is beautiful.
I always knew that Cuttlefish had a higher level of intelligence, but a new study finds that their decision-making ability is beyond what research initially expected. The Cuttlefish can pass the Marshmallow Test, which is a test to detect the level of decision-making capabilities of the test subject. Apparently, the Cuttlefish is good with decisions.
Listen to the episode to find out the details.

Teresa Iglesias, a biologist at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, recently co-authored a paper on whether cuttlefish can dream. Teresa and her team observed Rapid Eye Movement (REM) in cuttlefish during an experiment that also occurs in mammals and other vertebrates. REM in humans is what scientists think leads us to dream. Of course, it is difficult to provide evidence that cuttlefish dream, the possibility of it happening is more real than we might have thought before this study.
