Hey all, I've always been curius about how giant squids leave scars on sperm whales. I can't imagine what it takes to do that, which leads me to my question... What causes this? Does the whale (when it senses that it's being latched on to) try to remove it and eat it, there for causing the suckers to "tear" right off too fast, or does the squid just try to kill it's attacker by trying to tear it apart? I understand that there's little known about this, but I was just curius. Those must be strong suckers (hehe, no pun intended)!
