This small squid can mostly be seen during night dives. They are usually hovering over the sand or sit on top or hidden inside the substrate. Their metallic appearance makes them an interesting objective for underwater macro photography. Males can reach a size of up to 3 cm. Female bobtail squid can grow up to 5 cm.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
