No “Squidding around” here!

Propelling swiftly through the sea, its body, in perfect
symmetry. Kind of funny looking all around,
a highly intelligent creature
among the sea-bound. Its three hearts help it
live and survive
in the treacherous sea, where this
super-strong swimmer can often be impossible to see!
The skin of the squid, its head, mantle, arms, and its tentacles too,
are covered in chromatophores,
which helps it change its color in the ocean blue.
For the squid, there’s no squidding around day or night, camouflaging is
vital for its survival and to hunt its prey before it gets away
and to not be spied by a
predator’s eye!

    I’m into nature, gardening, etc., too. Consider writing about nature for children’s magazines. The Cricket family of magazines is good.
