Rare deep-sea squid found off the Big Island

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ A rarely seen squid that normally dwells deep in the ocean appeared at a Big Island lab after being sucked up by a water pipeline last week.

The creature appeared to be half-squid, half-octopus because it was missing its two tentacles and had only its eight arms.

But an analysis by University of Hawaii experts revealed the creature to be a little-known squid species that scientists are aware of but have yet to name.

The creature normally lives at depths between 900 to 28-hundred feet. The pipeline sucks up water from three-thousand feet below the surface, however, indicating the squid also appears at lower depths.
