Its bed time!

Sepioloidea lineolata is one of the most photogenic of all sepiolids. Too bad it spends much of its time buried in the sand.

Abdopus Sp.? male insertion into female's mantle

Mating in Abdopus species usually occurs with the male remaining at a distance from the female and inserting his hectocotylized 3rd righ arm into the female's mantle cavity. Insertion can last for hours and might best be viewed as a form of mate-guarding.

    Has he shown a preference for the beak to beak encounter or does that appear to be the preference of the female? Also, does the Larger Pacific ALWAYS mate beak to beak?
  2. Neogonodactylus
    Fortunately, this male has survived 4 matings and is still intact.
  3. DWhatley
    Oh WOW! I assume no predation followed. Will we see a paper on this anytime soon?
