The inconsiderate high-beaming SUV drivers of the undersea world

giant squid attackingGiant squid disorient their prey with blinding flashes of light. The video I watched on the page seemed a bit off, but maybe it’ll be better for you. I got the idea, anyway. Super cool, this Nature thing.

The footage reveals the creatures emitting short flashes from light-producing organs, called photophores, on their arms.

How cool would that be in a club? Since the photophores also seem to function as a form of giant squid courtship, I can imagine some genetically-modified future where someone can flash the message, “Get your coat. You’ve pulled,” through the photophores they’ve got on their arms.

See how I moved from aggressive behaviour in the title to shagging? That’s human nature, my friends.
