The upcoming issue of Reefs magazine will feature part two of the series documenting the Steinhart Aquarium in California Academy of Sciences role in the 2011 Philippine Biodiversity Expedition. Check out part one here, and until the new issue is out, here is something that was cut from the part 2:

“As the night wore on, another cephalopod emerged, the Bobtail squid, Sepiadarium kochi. These animals are less than and inch long, fiercely noctournal, and like to bury themselves in the muck at the first sign of potential trouble. The bottom was thick with them. We didn’t collect any for display, but did get some great video of their burying behavior.”
