婴儿巨人鱿鱼

屏幕截图2015-11-05在7.25.28下午 我们几乎没有任何关于巨型鱿鱼的扁平鱿鱼,幔长度小于1000毫米(〜40英寸)。非常年轻的鱿鱼比成年人更神秘。最近的一项研究报告了三个非常年轻的巨人鱿鱼的收集。三个年轻测量的140.8,332和332毫米(5.5和13英寸)。三种中最重的称重少于磅(390.6克)。与成年人不同,与身体的长度相比,幼虫的翅片非常微小。在青少年中,触手的长度只是比身体略长。在成年人的巨人鱿鱼,触手的长度可以超过身体长度的3倍。与成年华而不实的是大规模的鳍和触手!

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
