    Diver just brought this into the LFS. It's from along the east coast of Florida. About an inch or so not including tentacles, large eyes and keeps his arms pulled back up over his head. Here's the best pic I could get. [​IMG]

    I would guess a Caribbean Reef Squid, Sepioteuthis sepioidea. It's really cute!

    Cool. If it survived the night at the LFS I'll probably take him home today. Should be interesting if I can get him to eat.
