That’s it folks! Squids have learned to fly and we are ready to submit to the new Ceph Overlords. A shoal of eight-inch blue squid called Todarodes pacificus were captured by photographer Graham Ekins while leaping out of the water for distances up to 65 feet. Look at that aerodynamic shape, the extended fins and flattened arms- squids were planning this all along. We always thought it was fishy that cephalopods used jet propulsion underwater but now that squids have gone airborne, it’s only a matter of time before they collectively learn to take us out using aerial attacks. A more detailed description of our future boneless rulers can be read at the Mail Online. Thanks michael!
