Piglet Squid, The "Cute" Squid

As if there weren’t enough weird looking things in the ocean, the Piglet Squid (Helicocranchia) is one of the oddest-looking sea creatures I have ever laid eyes on. First off, it’s absolutely adorable looking…to the point where you’d probably want it as a pet.

The Piglet Squid is you guessed it, a squid that resembles a little piglet. It was caught off the shores of Nigeria and is characterized by having a very large funnel and small paddle-like fins. These squids are about the size of an avocado and usually live in deep ocean waters all across the world.
