Look at that little guy - JUST LOOK! Stubby squid are teeny little cuties that often unnoticed during a dive, due to their size and ability to hide amongst the sand.
We found this little one in the sand near one of our favourite walls off of Parksville, British Columbia. We were looking at something completely different until we spotted this one sitting in the sand, walking, and burying himself before we parted ways.
We see them in the winter months on shallower sandy slopes. They move into deeper water in the summer to breed.
