Happy almost Halloween. Have a spider girl.
MEET THE BIGFIN SQUID.
Did not know these existed ‘til just now. Magapinna are different from most squid. They have elbows. They have huge fins, up to 90% the size of their mantle. They have elastic tentacles which can stretch to 15-20 times the mantle length. They live at a depth of more than 7,000 feet below the surface.
They seem to live mostly in the Gulf of Mexico. We aren’t sure what they eat.
They eat the dreams of small children is what
okay, okay, i admit this is not in any way, shape or form an arthropod, but damn.
