“This is not a story about how much we are in a hurry to go to the beach, or how we have to go back home because of weather.
This is about the importance of being able to go home safely,” said Dr. Karen D. Sauer, the study’s lead author.
“I think we can all agree that the risk of infection is high in this situation, and if you are pregnant, you should know it.”
While some experts believe the squid was likely born in a warm water environment, Sauer said that the creature was probably in a more remote place, possibly on land.
The squid was born in the sea and the animal could have died within days or weeks of birth, she said.
“The fact that it was alive for so long in the ocean suggests that it is probably a squid that is quite active during the first weeks of life,” Sauer told the Los Angeles Times.
Sauer and her colleagues spent about three weeks searching for the creature and released it into a tropical lagoon.
They returned to the water in the morning, then waited for the animal to emerge.
“We waited about 10 days to release it into the water,” Sazer said.
“It was probably swimming about 25 feet in the water, and it was still alive.”
The squid had been feeding on plankton, algae, and other animals for the first two weeks, so it appeared to be well fed, Sazer told Live Science.
But the creature began to die as it became sicker, according to Sauer.
“At one point, the squid appeared to have taken its last breath,” she said in a news release.
“When it came out of the water and floated up, it was probably still alive.
It probably took about a week for it to die, but the death of the squid made it much harder to get the baby back.”
Sauer said the squid could have been a “bigger squid” than the ones she had seen in the past.
The researchers said the creature could have weighed up to 30 tons.
Scientists hope to study the squid to learn more about the way that animals evolve.
“This study has been very important for understanding what animals can do in the womb,” said Sauer in a statement.
“The squid is one of those animals that has been studied very carefully for the past two decades and has a lot of insights into how organisms evolve and how their lives and the evolution of their bodies change over time.”
But we want to see if we can get some of that information back to scientists so that they can understand more about how this is possible in the wild.
