  • Critters at Lembeh Resort
  • Found this candy colored little ninja on yesterday’s night dive and now I think I have a new favorite cephalopod. This tiny bobtail squid was less than an inch long (maybe 2cm). Did you know bobtail squid have a special symbiotic relationship with bioluminescent bacteria which inhabit a special light organ in the squid's mantle. The bacteria are fed a sugar and amino acid solution by the squid and in return hide the squid's silhouette when viewed from below by matching the amount of light hitting the top of the mantle. Like a glowing camouflage.
