Featuring The Bigfin Reef Squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana)
With radiant and holographic colours these squid are luminous and mesmerizing. Often found close to the surface chasing their prey in the moonlight, these beauties might make you think twice about eating calamari.
Bigfin reef squid grow fast, and with this comes an incredibly short life span of about 1 year which makes seeing them alive out in the ocean even more special.
Did you know?
Just like their cousins, the octopus, they have eight arms with an additional two tentacles.
