The blood is pumped by three separate hearts: two branchial hearts pump blood to the cuttlefish’s pair of gills (one heart for each), and the third pumps blood around the rest of the body. Cuttlefish have large, W-shaped pupils, eight arms, and two tentacles furnished with denticulated suckers, with which they secure their prey. Cuttlefish eat small molluscs, crabs, shrimp, fish, octopodes, worms, and other cuttlefish. The average life expectancy of a cuttlefish is about one to two years. Cuttlefish also have one of the largest brain-to-body size ratios of all invertebrates

Once she’s had her fill of blood, she’ll rest for a couple of days before laying her eggs. The females “bite” with a long, pointed mouthpart called a proboscis. They use the serrated proboscis to pierce the skin and locate a capillary, then draw blood through one of two tubes.
