There seems to be many strange things that ruin a squid's (and yours) day.
From hungry sharks snacking on their corpses to loud noise destroying their brains, squid have it rough.
And when it comes to sex, it's EXTREMELY
hard difficult! (just ask the South Korean woman whose mouth was impregnated by squid-man gravy.)
The dumpling squid, a tiny 7 inch cephalopod, only lives for a year but they get SUPER nasty!
The squid have marathon sex sessions, lasting roughly three HOURS, which leaves them exhausted to say the least.
These dumpling squid need a nap after sex, as they become listless. This in turn makes it hard for them to swim, avoid predators, or even have sex ever again!
Male dumpling squid will often have multiple partners and researchers say the marathon sex-a-thons may contribute to their short life span.
It's hard out here for
pimp shrimp squid!
