    Well, as the other threads suggest; here we have the scaled squid, Lepidoteuthis grimaldii. Like their name suggests, they are covered in dermal cusions (resembling fish scales)

    No good pictures I'm afriad, but do check out the tolweb page, because these guys have a very interesting skin, and some of the pictures provided there are quite cool!

    It looks like and I assume is similar to snake skin. Wierd!
