LIVE OAK -- Santa Cruz Sentinel reader Mark Shwartz was taking his daily walk on the beach when he discovered this beached Humboldt squid Saturday afternoon. He caught this video before returning it to the ocean and contacted his friend, professor Bill Gilly of Stanford's Hopkins Marine Station, who confirmed it was a Humboldt squid, Shwartz said via email. Gilly also told Shwartz that many more Humboldt squid were washing up in the Pacific Grove area.
