    SQUID Squid begin mating with a circling nuptial dance. Teams of squid revolve around across a ‘spawning bed’ 200 metres in diameter. At daybreak they begin having sex and continue all day long – they only take a break so the female can drive down and deposit eggs. When she returns to the circle, the two go at it again. As twilight falls, the pair go offshore to eat and rest. At the first sign of sunlight, they return to their spot and do it all over again. This routine can last up to two weeks, ensuring a healthy population of squid.
