Australian scientist Mark Gordon goes in search of the missing link between the squid and the octopus. In this program we peer into the private lives of cephalopods: squids, octopuses, cuttlefish and the mysterious chambered nautilus. Some octopuses have arms two meters long; the smallest squid has a whole body no longer than 20 millimeters. These highly evolved shellfish display an incredible variety of behavior using color-change, highly maneuverable arms, a water jet-propulsion system and a large brain. Mark achieves his goal among some very unusual squids living at the bottom of the ocean.
