Latest Squid Stories
U.S. scientists have determined certain squids can detect light through a symbiotic organ, not just through their eyes. University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers said the light-emitting organ some squids use in camouflaging themselves to avoid being seen by predators also detects light.
It now appears that certain squids can detect light through an organ other than their eyes as well.
Once thought to be only the realm of the blue-ringed octopus, researchers have now shown that all octopuses and cuttlefish, and some squid are venomous.
Exquisitely sensitive microwave amplifier increases nano-scale measurement accuracy; could lead to quantum computing breakthroughs.
A new device to stop fleeing drivers was modeled after and named for the ocean squid, says the U.S.
Researchers say the elevated carbon dioxide levels expected to be found in the world's oceans by 2100 will likely lead to physiological impairments of jumbo (or Humboldt) squid.
Experts said the hundreds of Humboldt squid that have washed up on Oregon beaches during the past few days died because they ventured too far north for food.
By significantly reducing the uncertainty in delicate measurements of microwave signals, the new amplifier could boost the speed and precision of quantum computing and communications systems.

New evidence that chemical contaminants are finding their way into the deep-sea food web has been found in deep-sea squids and octopods, including the strange-looking â€œvampire squid".
