|The life of a squid|

Life's a squid, and then you die
Just being a squid can be hazardous to your health.
Most will probably live less than a year. They'll mate, spawn and die -- and that's if everything goes swimmingly.
Which is a whale of a big if.
For one thing, a whale might very well gobble them up first.
"A whale will eat a ton of squid in a day," said Sal Tringali, president of Monterey Fish Co.
They're also a popular entree for many fish and birds, as well as other ocean mammals -- not to mention people.
