Nom Nom Nom

This is a baby squid consuming one of its first ever meals: a small, shrimp-like crustacean known as 'mysid'.

Although not necessarily a natural food source for squid in the wild, they are an appropriate meal replacement for our 'domesticated' cephalopods.

They are relatively easy to capture (if you're willing to tramp through swampy creeks and get your feet dirty), although regular fishing sessions are required as squid will only consume live prey.
