Happy Easter Squids from Eco Squid (Faye) xx 🐰 Easter from the Seaster Bunny! 🐰 Don't be fooled, this little guy is actually a seaslug, a member of the nudibranch family. They’re our favourite Easter character of the ocean with their bunny ear like rhinophore on their heads. They use these sensory tentacles for smell and despite looking cute are very toxic.

And a little Lundy love from Eco Squid (Faye) xx 🥰💕❤️ Faithful lovers….. The puffin ❤️

These adorable birds are serious romantics at heart.
Puffins mate for life and return to the same breeding colonies year after year, where they engage in elaborate courtship rituals. Males puff out their chests, present gifts of beaks full of fish, and even engage in playful
"beak-fencing" duels to impress potential mates. Once paired, they collaborate in raising their chicks, sharing incubation and chick-rearing duties.

Happy Valentine’s Day

A little Valentine's trivia from Eco Squid (Faye) 😆. Have a great day all whether you celebrate the day or not 💕 Valentine's day! 💞

Did you know that the female Atlantic Wolffish court the males?

Females will identify a desirable male and “court” him by swimming around the male and rubbing against his body. Once an Atlantic wolffish has chosen a mate, they rarely breed with another.


Oeddech chi'n gwybod bod y fenyw Iwerydd Wolffish yn llys y gwrywod?

Bydd y merched yn ffeindio gwryw dymunol ac yn ei “lysu” trwy nofio o amgylch y gwryw a rhwbio yn erbyn ei gorff. Unwaith y bydd blaidd môr yr Iwerydd wedi dewis cymar, anaml y byddant yn bridio gydag un arall.
