I've seen photos of this squid in books, but I never thought a TONMO member would show up with the pajama squid in his tank!

What's he like - looks like the quiet type. :smile:

Beautiful little guy- one of my favorites as you can probably tell from my avatar.
Big as a peach you say! I always thought they were like the cuttles from Vancouver Island- just a couple inches long.
Very exciting

How long did you have it for? did it die or get let go again? Did it eat in captivity?

PS start looking for their eggs! They'd ship well to Scotland :smile:
