Universe The Future is Wild

The Megasquid is a 16.5-foot (5 m) high, 8.75-ton (8-tonne) terrestrial air-breathing descendant of squid. 200 million years in the future, after mammals became extinct, squids filled in the niches, creating a new group called Terasquids.


With a pair of tentacles that extend to 13 feet (4 m), and rhino-like skin, the Megasquid is a formidable creature. It roams the northern forests of Pangea II. Eight of its arms have evolved to become legs that look like thick columns, each about 1/3 of a meter thick. The remaining two arms have evolved to become manipulatory tentacle-like appendages. Its locomotion is different from other animals: it first moves its right front and back legs and the left middle legs, then its left front and back legs and its right middle legs. Although it would appear that an invertebrate of this size would not be able to live on land (it would be crushed by gravity and lack of bones), it has specialized muscles that form rings and columns in the legs to form a mock skeleton-like supporting structure. On its forehead is a pouch for producing a call akin to that of a frog. It is omnivorous; its main food source is fruit and also young Squibbons. At 14 ounces (400 g), its brain is about 1/20,000th of its overall body mass. The Megasquid is implied to have evolved from the Swampus, the first octopus to crawl onto land that lived prominently in the Bengal Swamps 100,000,000 years before the Megasquid's time.
