With boneless bodies, sinuous arms, sharp beaks and eyeballs bulging, squid, octopus and other cephalopods are considered by many to be the most fantastic creatures beyond in nature, attractive human imagination from the ancient legend of the modern horror science-fiction, but even these tentacles blobs may adopt more strange shapes and patterns. These are just some of the most unusual and different members of an already strange taxonomic class.
We all know that squid include the world’s largest and most ferocious of invertebrates, sea monsters that have inspired legends for centuries terrifying marine life, but rarely do people talk smaller squid world notoides Idiosepius. Less than an inch long, they live exclusively in the sea grass, fluttering them like insects in a meadow aquatique.
Patches of sticky cells of a pygmy squid is back enable them to stand firmly on the grass when they need to rest, leaving their tentacles free and prevents them from scanned when currents become difficult. They attach their eggs to grass the same way, one line at a time, with the female guarding them closely until they hatch.
The nearest nature a ghost sheet thing, little is known of these strange deep water cephalopods closely related to the “asshole octopus” similar but classified in their own group, Opisthoteuthis, and are characterized by their smooth, shape saucer-shaped. We do not know how they reproduce or even exactly what they eat, but they spend much of their time hovering or crawling on the muddy bottom of the abyss, flattened in puddles almost perfect.
Spiny Cranch Squid
Cranchid squid or “glass” are a family of high seas is distinguished by its completely transparent body, excellent camouflage for a life in the open water perpetually dark depths. Some species are protected from further inflating like a balloon swells in the spheres not swallowed. This is the same tactic that Blowfish are famous for, and this is not all they have in common, some species, such as Cranchia scabra, are also covered in sharp, nasty teeth-like projections. They can also get their entire head and all their tentacles inside the body, the equivalent of a turtle squid.
Another resident high transparent sea Amphitretus pelagicus is the only known species in its particular genre, distinguished by tubular unlike those of any other cephalopod eyeballs. These eye-stalks are able to rotate independently, like a chameleon, and sophisticated structure involves a unique vision, even among cephalopods, whose eyes are already superior to ours. All this can be due to many squid as a lifestyle of the animal, still drifting in open water, it has never been observed crawling on the floor of the sea as other species of octopus.
Octopoteuthis deletron seems somewhat typical squid at sea, at first glance, but has recently demonstrated a unique mechanism rather morbid defense, when attacked, it can detach and release one or more of his hook arm tree which will reflex to wrap around what they touch and flash from red to white while the squid made his escape.
Cuttlefish are well known for both their intelligence and their ability to camouflage amazing even capable of “animation” patterns on their skin to confuse their prey. While most will try to blend in with their environment, however, the “flamboyant” cuttlefish it bears its name indicates, a color intense flowery to warn predators of its poisonous flesh. Stranger still is one of the poorest in the whole squid or cuttlefish swimmers, and instead of “walks” on the floor of the sea, with two of his arms as “legs before “and two muscle flaps of skin as” legs. “This is the only mollusk with a quadrupedal gait, like many of us vertebrates. Crawling up small prey, it draws on both tentacles in a way that may remind you of a frog or a chameleon.
The Paper Nautilus
Also known as “Argonauts”, this extremely rare group, poorly documented and rarely seen octopuses are named for the thin papery shells secreted by females and carried with them as mobile nests for their eggs and young. The men, who live only to reproduce, are as little as one twentieth the size female, and die immediately after breaking a long tentacle sperm filled inside the mantle of the female. This reproductive tentacle, still the third right arm, is performed inside a special pocket, giving the appearance a male dwarf with seven branches, and at first found broken inside females, it was taken for a new parasitic worm.
Female argonauts are sometimes seen attached to large jellyfish bells, dragging with them as poisonous defense against predators creatures. The evidence suggests that they also suck food particles from the stomach contents of jelly, like a parasite, using other animals as both a food source and a weapon.
The Long-Armed Squid
One strange squid look into the abyss, the long armed squid or “bent” is also one of the great, while its compact body is just a few feet in length, its tentacles seem to be up to twenty times length, all the creature thought to reach thirty feet or more. These incredible tentacles seem to be extremely scalable, all the same length and kept out of the “bends” articulated near the base of an invisible feature in other squid or octopus.
Slowly waving his massive wings, the long squid hovers silently arm in the water with minimal effort, the ghostly tendrils likely trapping any fish or shellfish blunder into them. This is actually a squid behave as a huge jellyfish or Man O War “, a lounge, flesh-eating spider spread in the black void of the abyss.
The Vampire Squid
Veined with red skin, bright, fake eyes on the top of the head cover, the tentacles are attached in a dark cloth and finger-shaped, fleshy spines instead of suction cups, this suits the foreign entity’s Latin name quite well, “Vampyroteuthis infernalis” means “vampire squid from hell” and it can be found living in a place called ‘gray area’, or less poetically, the “oxygen minimum zone” an environment where sea water stagnates and bears little animal life effectively.
The Cock-Eyed Squid
The deep deep sea may seem dark night in the eyes of us surface dwellers, but most of the people are very sensitive to light, their environment and appear bright blue during the day. This means that for some animals, is a dark abyss where dark objects are harder to see and bright objects stand out, but other animals are dark objects that are obvious, and mix bright objects with that bright, blue sea only they can perceive. Every creature made a compromise with his vision, able to see, but not all of its predators and prey.
