Deep-sea Squid has Spiked Tentacles

squid

The squid named Galiteuthis armata isn’t particularly big, but it has a feature that gives it star billing in your nightmares. There are rows of sharp hooks on the ends of its tentacles. This is one squid you don’t want to anger! See more pictures, including a close-up of those spikes, at Deep Sea News. Link -via Ed Yong
