This is a tribute towards a very special animal. The story behind the image is that it was submitted for the BP Kongsberg Underwater Image Competition in 2006. The piglet squid received 10th place in the underwater images category. More pictures of the squid can be found here. Although this is a bit small to be a wallpaper, I recommend tiling it for full piglet squid awesomeness.

You can see a video of the piglet squid in action on youtube, starting at 1:56, along with other interesting deep sea squids.
