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.

"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.
