Loliginid squid mating

Well, more fun, actually…these squid have a frenzied spawning, and then die. Don’t go quite that far.

    Thanks for the hot tip on teh Wikipedia, Fred:

    The male then attaches a sticky packet of sperm to the female’s body. As he reaches out with the sperm packet, he displays a pulsating pattern. The female places the packet in her seminal receptacle, finds appropriate places to lay her eggs in small clusters, and then dies.

    I am so turned on right now.
