Baby-squid

anonymous asked:

What were Callie and Marie like when they were little squid babies?

“They were little squid devils-I- I mean, angels! Callie always was up for any sort of mischief while Marie had always been a little more quiet. Before their success, they were just like after, in a way. EXCEPT THAT ONE OF THEM IS DATING AN OCTOLING! WHERE HAVE I GONE WRONG!?!?

EGGS of Loligo vulgaris: the European squid, a large squid belonging to the family Loliginidae.

Two stages of the development of a [European squid] are visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter; when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients (all the yolk that is attached to it), it plops its suckers to the inside of the diaphragm and releases enzymes that will aid opening the shell, pushing through the opening - and a tiny new ALIEN of the DEEP is born :]

Notice the CHROMATOPHORES already embedded in its skin and the tiny little SIPHON… BTW, the SQUID on the left is actually laying on its back…
