Sometimes I just get lucky. Not usually, but this seems to be one of those times. I live less than an hour from Cape Canaveral and it just so happens that my LFS had a connection with the folks working on the "squids in space" project referenced above.

To cut to the chase . . . they have 2 bobtail squid that I should be picking up Thursday. I stopped by and saw them yesterday. It's 2 males which were supposed to be a male and a female but the project didn't have a surplus female. So 2 males will still be cool to observe and record.

I'll start a thread once I get them home.

Can your LFS ship these squid?

Well they only got 2 and they don't need to ship them to my house. :wink:

I do know that the folks that collected them in Hawaii flew back with the squid to help increase their odds of survival. I'm still holding out hopes of getting a female since they are supposed to reproduce in captivity fairly well.
