The Caribbean Reef Squid (Sepioteuthis sepioidea), also known as the Reef Squid, is a small (20 cm) torpedo-shaped cephalopod (see this previous post) with fins that extend nearly the entire length of the body and undulate rapidly as it swims. The squid has recently become notable when it was discovered that it could fly out of the water; a discovery which finally led to identification of six species of flying squid. The Caribbean Reef Squid is found throughout the Caribbean Sea as well as off the coast of Florida, commonly in small schools of 4-30 in the shallows associated with reefs.
