    Nice, very nice indeed! One query I do have is whether that was in fact a male; I was completely unaware of bonding/pairing off in these squid in the wild, or any paternal role in egg deposition.

    What we have here (growing in culture) is Sepioteuthis australis. I would love to release them one day and get comparable in situ images of the animals. The digital camera is still AWOL, so getting pictures of the 70-day-old squid online is a tad difficult at present, but they're certainly growing!
