Picture Of The Day - Strange Squid With Human-like Teeth


Promachoteuthis sulcus

From Tree Of Life

New species discovered by Richard E. Young and Michael Vecchione

This squid is known from a single, small (25 mm ML, sex female) but distinctive individual from great depths in the south Atlantic Ocean.

It was caught by Walther Herwig at a depth of over one mile in the South Atlantic Ocean.  With 2 arms and 8 tentacles, it is one of the most unusual squids discovered.

The site linked above has much more information.

If this is a baby, I'd hate to meet Mom or Dad

I don't know if I can easily believe in a squid with remarkably human-looking teeth. The squid in the picture has better looking teeth than I do and I doubt if it ever flossed a day in its' life.

It's obvious that's a human-squidapus.
