Yes, they put 3D Glasses on a Cuttlefish

Now why would anybody do that?

Researchers at the University of Minnesota lead by Trevor Wardhill, wanted to see if cuttlefish have depth perception. They somehow got the cuttlefish to wear the 3-D glasses, then showed it an offset image on a screen just like a 3-D movie. The cuttlefish attacked the simulated image of its prey.

Apparently that now means cuttlefish can see in 3-D and some other stuff. I'm not certain if this is shocking for the scientific community, but I am all for the advancement of science.

Personally, I think the scientist's were consuming adult beverages when they came up with this idea.
