Japanese Cuttlefish/Squid Species 6: “Japanese lesser” Varieties

IKA-MONSTER
Inedible Lesser Variety!: Giant Squid

By “Japanese lesser” I mean species both more difficult to find on markets, more local and not as appreciated as the former five varieties.
Howeve these should not be looked over as they are still good enough for the finnicky Japanese and appreciated as rarities!

I kept the pictures small as this would be just too big a report!
