Despite having travelled quite extensively in the last year, I’ve been too distracted to upload any pictures. I’ll be uploading pictures from my boyfriend’s and my adventures in Argentina, Chile, and the Canadian Rockies in the next couple of days. Cheers!
Deep-sea squid: elusive, mysterious and parental? While some squid in the open ocean release their eggs to drift in the water column, our research partners at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute have discovered a deep-sea squid (Bathyteuthis berryi) that broods her eggs in a sheet attached to her body! It’s the second known instance of parental care in squid. Watch MBARI’s latest video for some amazing footage!
