Can anybody help me identify this squid?

It was found beached in Queen charlotte's island

Hmmmmm. What a find; I hope you placed it in the back of your van and raced to the nearest cool store/freezer! I'd give you US$5000 for that!! It looks like an absolute stunner.

I don't know the location at all, but it's got that Moroteuthis robusta look to it.
 
Oh goodness, that is awesome! Thankyou for posting the image.

Did you measure the squid? Any idea of length? Surely this is Moroteuthis (Jean, where are you?)

Queen Charlotte's Island is also a good source of ammonites. Where did you hide the shell? :wink:
 
Thank you very much for all the information about the squid.
Phil, The lenght was between 5-6 feet, we didn't mesure it!!!

The picture was actually taken by Kathy Johnson

Thank you !

This website ROCKS!!!!!!
 
You guys will probably ban me from your website!

I didn't know squidlysquat about squids before trying to identify the one on our picture.

To be honest, the tide was coming up quickly and we were 10km away from the exit of the beach. North beach is well know for swallowing cars, so we left it with mother nature...

Most of us get here with very little knowledge and a bit of curiosity, just like you.

:shock: Sounds like the tide tables are a necessity near you. Octomush, does the tide affect your access to your cove?
