New content sexy squids advertise with their skin to communicate their need for a mate. Messages such as readiness to mate, sexual identification, and alarm are flashed through various colors. You can see in this male squid he transformed from dull bronze to bright blue with little electric like shimmering sparkles. He swam around the female sometimes stroking her with his tentacles, blowing water at her and gently jetting away backwards. The female accepted him, he blazes a pulsing pattern and deposits a sticky packet of sperm on her body. The placid female transfers the sperm packet to her seminal receptacle which contains the eggs waiting to be fertilized. She immediately drops to the bottom and places the fertilized eggs underneath a shelf of coral to protect them from predators. She quietly dies having fulfilled her role. The male may fertilize many females but then he too dies. Some similarities to humans, their courting and mating you bet including flashy clothes! I watched this pair and their courting for 40 minutes amazing!
