Some squid species live in shallow waters near coastlines, but others live in deeper ocean waters. The California shoreline and Florida coast are popular spots. The lifespan of species that live in deeper waters is often longer because these spots offer more plentiful food and less hunting by humans.
After mating, female squid lay a lot of eggs in a large mass. They bury their eggs in rocks, holes or other hiding spots under the water. The different species of squid have distinct features that enable them to live in specific waters. Some have tentacle hooks, while others have suckers over their eyes.
