Team Stubby Squid

Alias: Stubby Squid

Real name: Rossia pacifica

Type: Benthic invertebrate

 

Now you see it, now you don’t. The googly-eyed Stubby Squid probably has the coolest and most coveted superpower of all: invisibility. Its camouflage adaptations include color changes, ink ejections and the ability to decorate its sticky mucous jacket to further disguise itself. The Stubby Squid may look like a child’s toy because of its small size, but its nerves are 1,000 times longer than a typical mammal’s (yes, that includes us).

 

Although this sea creature was a recent discovery, authors have included its family in their stories since the 18th century. Jules Verne made their species infamous in “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.”

 

So #TeamStubbySquid, if you want this master of disguise to win, vote now!
