Eggs of the Cuttlefish

Broadclub and Flamboyant cuttlefish eggs. Male cuttlefish mate with the females by grabbing them with their tentacles, turning the female so that the two animals are face-to-face, then using a specialized tentacle to insert sperm sacs into an opening near the female’s mouth. The male then guards the female until she lays the eggs a few hours later. For Flamboyant cuttlefish, freshly laid eggs are white, but slowly turn translucent with time, making the developing cuttlefish clearly visible after only five days. After 3 to 4 weeks with an average of 25 days, flambo eggs hatch. (Wikipedia)
