YAAAY NAUTILUS.
I'm fairly surprised that we didn't already have a thread like this...
But enough of that, have a cuttlefish.

It goes through a few photos first, but don't worry, it's not just a slide show.

Possibly the Cutest members of the Cephalopods, the Bobtail Squid.

Nice. Too bad the maker of the model in Newcastle Museam had someone describe what the Vampire Squid looked like to him, and missed out on all the cool features, such as the huge eyes, the photophores and its tricks with the said photophores. Either that or he actually thought this was a good representation. Either way this abomination is unforgivable

Just look at it. Have you ever seen a worse model than that?

How it should look. Either black as the night, or a deep red with loads of lights. I like both ways :)
