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是舒萨瓦大学海洋财团的执行董事。他为20年进行了深海研究,并在该地区发表了超过50篇论文。他参与了几十个海洋探险,将他带到了南极和太平洋和大西洋最偏远的地区。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 (//www.adambalm.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.
