Tentacle Thursday: The vampire squid

This is the vampire squid. Growing to a maximum size of one feet (half of which are the spiky-webby tentacles), it’s the perfect pet for any evil overlord living at a depth of about a kilometre.

Fun fact: Its latin name Vampyroteuthis infernalis means “vampire squid from hell”.
