The squid is a master of camouflage and possesses unique chromatophores, which are linked to a neuromuscular organ rather than the typical cell structure associated with other color changing organisms.  This uniqueness offers a muscular approach to camouflage, instead of being controlled hormonally like other organisms with chromatophores.  Whatever the approach, the result is simply amazing.  Make sure to watch this in HD for the full effect.
