What Is The Difference Between Female and Male Reef Squids?

Its been a long time i did research on squid... Today i have nothing to do so i present to you all something that some may know or some may not know...

What is the difference? The difference is that one set of patterns refers to male squid while one refer to female squid!

♀ 斑点模様: Spot Pattern


♂ 横縞模様: Lateral Stripe Pattern


Now, the interesting thing to do is to check all your squid catches and see if they are female or male... And then compare the patterns on catch rate. Maybe this way we can determine the season. By this way, i have determined that male squid are usually much much bigger than females!
