Diablo Rojo

Humbolt squid cannibalizing a smaller version of itself.

Humbolt squid are one of the most aggressive species of squid, they will not hesitate to attack humans if they get too close.

Their tentacles have roughly 100 suckers, each lined with razor-sharp teeth that they use to hold onto their prey and move them towards their beak.

Cannibalism is very common within the humbolt squid community, over 1/4 of squid stomachs analyzed contained remains of other humbolt squid.

They get the name Diablo Rojo (red devil) from their ability to rapidly change their body color from red to white while they hunt.
