    Good morning...

    Yesterday I encountered a large Squid of the southern coast of South Africa and I was wondering if someone could help me identify the Squid Species...

    As you will gather from my web site, I am not a Cephalopod specialist, but rather a Shark biologist.

    Anyway, here are some pictures of the Squid in question:

    Then click on page 5 of April 2004, and you will see some photographs of the Squid I am trying to identify (note: I wrote there that it was a Diamond Squid from early confirmation, but after looking up some info on the web about these Squid, I have my doubts about the true identity of the Squid).

    I thank you in advance for your help and I look forward to hear from you...

    Take care and have a very nice Easter Weekend!

    Friendly yours,
    Michael Scholl
