Humboldt Squid facts: some might say "jumbo" | Animal Fact Files

The Humboldt squid is also known as the red devil squid and the jumbo flying squid. These cephalopods don't quite reach the gargantuan sizes of giant and colossal squid, but they can still pack a punch with their fist sized beaks. Humboldt squid live along the Pacific coasts of the Americas partaking in nightly migrations to the water's surface for midnight meals. These giant squid are believed to communicate with one another in the dark waters of the ocean by flashing in multiple patterns of light. Scientific Name: Dosidicus gigas Range: eastern Pacific ocean Size: up to 100lbs (45kg); 8ft (2.4m) Diet: fish, crustaceans, other cephalopods Lifespan: 2 years or fewer You can learn more on: Twitter - https://twitter.com/animalfactfiles Facebook - https://facebook.com/animalfactfiles --- We always do what we can to be as accurate as possible, but we're only human; if you catch a mistake please let us know and provide a link for verification! --- All images, videos and sound effects used herein are 1) public domain, 2) used under a Creative Commons license, 3) used with the express permission of the copyright holder, or 4) used under the parameters of Fair Use law.
