What has three hearts, two retractable tentacles, eight renewable arms, green blood, jet propulsion, a beak like a parrot, and better defense mechanisms than a James Bond car? The answer: a cuttlefish. Most of you know of Peter’s love for the strangest creatures around. Well this one ticks all the boxes and more. The cuttlefish is gas filled and can propel itself along with jets of water. It produces sepia ink that it uses to fool predators. Its ink also has been used by artists for centuries. This complex creature can change color in less than a second, enabling it to match its environment and display to other cuttlefish. Two large eyes give it a comical appearance, which of course appealed to Peter when choosing the subject. A bottle of sepia ink and a quill pen are found within this eccentric box figurine. There is also an interior memo which reads "Kill Wife". This, according to Peter, “is because my wife managed to bake the model while I was drying it in the oven. . .only a week’s work F****D up”.
