First observation of an egg-brooding squid. I always thought that the male squid sticks his fertilizing pod into the female's mantle and fertilizes the eggs, and the female then releases them to the ocean. But, at least some female squids collects the eggs into a sac and chauffeurs the bulky sac around for a while.

MBARI's remotely operated vehicle Ventana captured this photograph of a female Gonatus onyx carrying a large egg mass, which is suspended from hooks under the squid's arms. The squid is apparently using its arms to pump fresh water into the egg mass, which causes it to inflate like a balloon.
