A well known crumb off the sperm whales' table. My friend Esther is about to embark on her own little expedition to Pico this April, let's see what she brings home regarding interesting (photographic) material!

Cool!! I am obviously far too entrenched in the squid side of things... I read 'H. atlanticus,' looked at the photo and thought, 'That's no Histioteuthis!' :roll:

:LOL: I was also expecting a squid and did a double take, thinking on "but that's an octopus, not a squid" and then had to laugh when I saw your post.

She's also incredibly fresh, I love that dark red. Impressive beak, also.

Bumpy! Have actually just reviewed a pretty cool little MS about another species' egg masses -- will let you know if/when I hear that it's been published :smile:
