Friday Squid Blogging: Squids Are As Intelligent As Dogs

Uncooked squid may contain a parasite called Anisakiasis (herring worm disease). When dogs (or humans!) eat raw or under cooked squid, parasitic worms may attach themselves to the intestines, stomach and oesophagus.

Friday Squid Blogging: Squids Are as Intelligent as Dogs

Commercially fished squids are typically caught offshore, sometimes far out at sea. Many different squid species are fished and eaten. In 2002, the most commonly caught squid species were the European squid, the Argentine shortfin squid, the jumbo flying squid, and the Japanese flying squid. The jumbo flying squid fishery is currently the most productive in the world.

Make a short response to your question. Can squids be arthropods? The Phylum Mollusca and the Class Cephalopda are the only organisms that belong to this species. What are the three major rivers that lead to Troy and Ithaca?

The squid is widespread in the ocean, and it can be found almost anywhere there is water. A squid is a small creature that eats small animals like fish, crustaceans, and even other squids. Squids can, in fact, filter their food by using water as a filtering medium. Squids, like other animals, can change color and camouflage. They are known for their ink, which they use to mark their territory and ward off predators. Squids are an important component of the ocean ecosystem, and they play an important role in the food chain despite their unappealing appearance. Furthermore, the ink they use is a valuable resource for researchers in oceanography and marine biology.

An octopus (PL: octopuses or octopodes, see below for variants) is a soft-bodied, eight-limbed mollusc of the order Octopoda (/ɒkˈtɒpədə/, ok-TOP-ə-də[3]). The order consists of some 300 species and is grouped within the class Cephalopoda with squids, cuttlefish, and nautiloids. Like other cephalopods, an octopus is bilaterally symmetric with two eyes and a beaked mouth at the center point of the eight limbs.[a] The soft body can radically alter its shape, enabling octopuses to squeeze through small gaps. They trail their eight appendages behind them as they swim. The siphon is used both for respiration and for locomotion, by expelling a jet of water. Octopuses have a complex nervous system and excellent sight, and are among the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates.

The Cephalopoda evolved from a mollusc resembling the Monoplacophora in the Cambrian some 530 million years ago. The Coleoidea diverged from the nautiloids in the Devonian some 416 million years ago. In turn, the coleoids (including the squids and octopods) brought their shells inside the body and some 276 million years ago, during the Permian, split into the Vampyropoda and the Decabrachia.[124] The octopuses arose from the Muensterelloidea within the Vampyropoda in the Jurassic. The earliest octopus likely lived near the sea floor (benthic to demersal) in shallow marine environments.[124][125][123] Octopuses consist mostly of soft tissue, and so fossils are relatively rare. As soft-bodied cephalopods, they lack the external shell of most molluscs, including other cephalopods like the nautiloids and the extinct Ammonoidea.[126] They have eight limbs like other Coleoidea, but lack the extra specialised feeding appendages known as tentacles which are longer and thinner with suckers only at their club-like ends.[127] The vampire squid (Vampyroteuthis) also lacks tentacles but has sensory filaments.[128]

The encephalopods separated from the ancestors of intelligent creatures 500 million years ago. They separated from the line of nautilus and arose as predators 400 million years ago. Nautilus had precursors of neurons very early; nautilus, also, has advanced memory, learning and spatial awareness, but less than the octopus. Very intelligent squid separated from the octopus in evolution 270 million years ago. The octopus rapidly evolved large brains 65 million years ago while competing with fish and reptiles.

Squids are also very intelligent and can be trained to do tricks. They are usually smaller than octopuses, making them a good choice for those with limited space. Pygmy squid is a popular species for a pet, however, they only live for about six months.

Striped pyjama squids (Sepioloidea lineolata) are some of the cutest cephalopods, rarely seen in aquariums. Pyjama squids are part of the Sepiadariida family, which is a group related to squid and cuttlefish. So it seems despite their name, pyjama squids are not really squids at all!

Pyjama squids are similar in body shape to cuttlefish, and both are stealthy ambush predators. At night, pyjama squids can be seen bobbing along the seafloor hunting for prey, while cuttlefish are masters at buoyancy, hovering motionlessly in the water.

Cuttlefish have a unique bone called the cuttlebone which is porous and made of aragonite. The cuttlebone has different gas-filled chambers important for buoyancy. Although similar in shape and color-changing abilities, the pyjama squids from the Sepiadariida family are lacking this porous buoyancy bone.

Pyjama squids are tiny creatures with adults reaching only 3in / 7cm in length. Pyjama squids have a short life expectancy anywhere from 8 months to 2 years. And until recently your best chance at spotting a pygmy squid was snorkeling or scuba diving off the coast of Australia in their natural habitat.

Cracking the code and rearing pyjama squids in captivity is one of the many achievements in captive breeding pioneered by public aquariums. Visit your favorite public aquarium website to see how you can support pubic aquariums during this time.

The color of ink expelled depends on the species of the cephalopod. Octopus ink is usually black; squids produce dark blue in; and cuttlefish ink is generally a shade of brown. The ink from cephalopods is not toxic, contrary to popular belief. However, squids and octopuses do have venom glands completely unrelated and separate from the ink sacs.

The Appalachian mud squid is a species of squid located in the Appalachian mountains of the United States in the state of Georgia. Despite being drunks and illiterate, they are very intelligent for animals as they talk, hold objects, drive and perform several other human activities.

The squids are small compared to most humans, but their sizes are different among each other. The squids are said to be invertebrates, however they have been shown with bones and have broken them on several occasions. The Appalachian Mud Squid does have the ability to squirt ink from their funnel like most other species of squid. They have been shown to have up to 9 tentacles (Early in "Velvet Messiah") but many have only 5 (Granny). The squid color varies from Green to Pink to Orange. They are also extremely resilient creatures, able to survive and endure great pain, punishment and also having the ability of extraordinary regeneration from lethal wounds. Later episodes revealed that all Squids are hermaphrodite, meaning they have both male and female genitalia, unlike the real-life aquatic squid, their genitalia is located underneath them and it is not one of their limbs, though two of Early's limbs are depicted as genitalia in the episodes "Frivolacious Squidigation" and "Asbestos I Can." In the episode "There's Sucker Porn Every Minute", the beak of the Appalachian Mud Squid species is revealed and the beak is revealed to be their own genitalia, which is a mouth that can speak, though in "Debased Ball", Granny's genitalia was blurred onscreen.

The Mud Squids were some of the many aquatic creatures that were living in the Americas when the entire north was flooded by the Atlantic Ocean. As time passed, the ocean subsided to form the geography that is today and during that process, the squids began evolving to walk on land. According to Cuyler, the Squids inhabited the lands of Dougal County since the time of the Indian (aka Native Americans), where they fought a great war which resulted in their complete defeat in a matter of minutes. Later on they would be enslaved by American Southerners in rural plantation, yet when the Civil War ended, the rebels tried but failed to give them to the Yankee's, citing that they are lazy, welfare-sponging, disgusting tasting, useless waste of space. Due to their nature, they were for the longest time treated harshly by the residents of the south, and sometimes continue to be treated as such to this day. They are currently residents of Dougal county.

However, in Season 4, the Sheriff hints that the Squids might've come from, "-a nuclear accident or space". Granny Cuyler appears to be the last "pure" breed of Mud squids as the other squids were born with a human as one of the parents. However, this could be false as Ga Ga Cuyler appears to be pure squid and since he is the father of Early and Lil it is most likely they are pure bred as well and may take more after their father than Granny. 350c69d7ab
