What in the Worldis a Piglet Squid?
Piglet Squids are "about the size of an avocado, and those
bushy eyebrow-type protuberances are actually eight tentacles
and two "arms." A row of pigment-containing, light-reflecting
cells called chromatophores are responsible for the appearance
of a smile on this particular specimen, and its bright eyes
are the result of two light-emitting organs called photophores,
which are located behind each of its eyes." Los Angeles Times.
Can you handle the cute?
