Friday Cephalopod: Pudgy & passionate

The dumpling squid is as unprepossessing as its name implies, but beneath that plump exterior lurks a savage lust. They mate for 1-3 hours, to the point where they’re completely physically exhausted, and an easy target for a predator…but it’s all so worth it.

    Cullum Brown:

    “He’s tired afterwards because he’s been physically fighting with the girl for however long it takes, and the female is largely exhausted not because she’s struggling…but largely because her ability to breathe is reduced with the grip the male has on her. She’s actually getting asphyxiated.”

    Fie upon your “un-prepossessing-ness”. Dumpling squids are cuter than cute buttons.
