Dosidicus gigas, the humboldt squid.  Oh my fucking god.

I once heard these guys referred to as the “velociraptors of the sea.”

Or, you know… the frozen calimari steaks at Trader Joe’s.  That’s what they are.
With the changes going on in the ocean lately, there are a lot more of these guys off the West Coast.  Mexico has a fishery for them (where the above comes from), but here, there’s a lot of concern about them feeding on species that would otherwise be recovering from overfishing, because although, like other cephalopods they have short lifespans, they are really voracious predators.
