Friday Squid Blogging: Humboldt Squid Can Dive to 1.5 km
Yet another impressive Humboldt squid feat:
"We've seen them make really impressive dives up to a kilometre and a half deep, swimming straight through a zone where there's really low oxygen," the Hopkins Marine Station researcher said.
"They're able to spend several hours at this kilometre-and-a-half-deep, and then they go back up and continue their normal daily swimming behaviour. It's just a really impressive, really fast, deep dive through what is quite a harsh environment."
As usual, you can also use this squid post to talk about the security stories in the news that I haven't covered.
