Giant Humboldt squids have the ability to rapidly change their body color from red to white.  Scientists are not sure what the flashes of different colors mean.  They believe it is a way of communicating, but they don’t know exactly what. They have managed to mount cameras on the backs of a few squids and have plans to mount more, with the hope of learning more about what these amazing see creatures are communicating.  Read more about Humboldt Squids and see one of the videos researchers have collected here.
