Whilst trawling the web, I came accross this interesting looking pic http://ma-sami.cocolog-nifty.com/sake/ika-2.jpg which actually should be hidden behind some hyperlink on these very pages... There's an ika-1 and 3 as well, showing a fairly large squid, (I guess Architeuthis sp.) on some japanese fish market, with a remarkably sturdy mantle by the looks of it. Size is greatly exaggerated due to the camera angle chosen, but still... Can anyone forward me to the correct thread, for this one? many thanks in advance, OB PS: closer inspection reveals "ridges" on the arms, would that favour identification as Architeuthis?
