Wie Riesenkalmare geboren werden: Born Like Stars

Seltene Aufnahmen, die Brent Hoff bei der Geburt von Riesenkalmaren schon 2011 gelungen sind. Wie die Kleinen leuchten.

Thousands of eggs can be produced at a time by one female. It isn’t known how the eggs develop inside of the body of the squid. …What we do know is that the size of the eggs depends on the species, but they are all quite small in size. She will distribute them in hidden areas of the water including under rocks or in various holes and crevices she can find. It can be up to eight weeks before those eggs hatch so keeping them save from predators can be difficult. The female squid don’t wait around for them to hatch, they leave after depositing them.
