First Time On Film: Deep Sea Squid Killing A Fish

giant-sea-squid-kills-fish.jpg

Allegedly this is the first time a deep-sea squid has been filmed attacking a fish (and using its beak to drill into the fish's spinal cord -- BRUTAL). I have no idea if that's true or not because 1. I'm not a marine biologist and 2. I didn't Google it. Allegedly it is though, at least according to scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. I assume they know their stuff. But who knows, maybe they know less about what goes on in the oceans than the waitstaff at a B-grade seafood restaurant. I'm sorry, but I ordered the salmon. "That is the salmon." No, this is a crab.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to me, for being that fish. And the squid? That's life, just drilling its way into my spinal cord to suck out all the juices.

    Calamari's gotta eat.

    This is an interesting video of a squid eating a fish's face.

  • DrZanz

    Surprised at the lack of blood if it is indeed using the beak. looks more like it's keeping the gills closed.

    Real life creatures aren't blood bags that spill blood everywhere by any perforation. ...except mosquitoes and leeches.

  • DrZanz

    Ever foul hooked a fish that big? Trust me, they bleed, and a hook is not a squid beak. Could be sucking it all away I guess but I don't know how squids work. Just LOOKS more like it's keeping the gills closed than boring a hole into it that's all I'm saying.

    That big? How big do you think they are?

    "This video shows a deep-sea squid Gonatus onyx fighting to eat an
    owlfish Pseudobathylagus milleri. It was recorded using remotely
    operated vehicle Doc Ricketts."

    If the description is correct them that fish is smaller than my hand so unless it perforate the gills or cut an artery I see no reason for blood.

    The first thing that comes to mind is Garth Algar saying "Make it stop, it's sucking my will to live!"
