Commander squid is known to reach a mantle length of 25 cm, whereas its total body length may exceed 61 cm. Large oval egg masses of up to 50 cm in diameter are produced by the females. During daytime the commander squid remains in the blackness of the deep waters. By night in order to feed they go up to the upper layers. They boast an internal balancing organ known as statocyst which guarantees graceful movement.
