CREATURES OF THE sanDEEP
Though scientists know little about them, the Chennai Squid (first discovered off the coast of Eastern India in 1947 by a computer programmer/fisherman) is a nocturnal creature that feeds on starfish and sea cucumbers. They are harmless to humans. Though most remain within 100 miles from where they were born, some specimens have been known to migrate half way around the world.
