The bobtail squid or little Atlantic cuttle is, for most of us in Britain, our most accessible cephalopod. It’s one of the cutest species in the World’s oceans too. You can find it all around our coasts and it can be seen without snorkelling, fishing or turning over stones.
In warm calm weather in the summer months, paddling in the shallows at low tide, on almost any sandy beach is likely to disturb one from its hiding place in the sand. They cope very badly with being caught so please just enjoy meeting one.
Bolting from the sand, this tiny creature will swim away from you, most likely parallel with the beach, at about the point where the waves mount up and break. By jet propulsion it flees in spurts for about three metres and, if you persist, tires and moves to plan B. Squirting out a jet of ink that looks just like itself, it immediately changes to the colour of the sand and dives for cover, leaving you with the dummy drifting in the surf. Having wriggled into the sand it lies there with just its eyes uncovered waiting for it prey (tiny shrimps and crabs) to come ambling by.
This little beauty is somewhere between a squid and a cuttlefish and amongst the smallest of all the cephalopods (our smallest species) whose largest members (the giant and colossal squids) are the largest invertebrates on Earth.
