The Humbolt Squid – well OK this is a silly one but when I heard a joke about the deadliest creature in the sea being a ‘firing squid’, well...there was no going back!
Of course, it lent itself perfectly to my slightly odd sense of humour and hence the Firing Squid was created, complete with his firearms.
Our family are also fans of ‘Deadly 60’, a BBC wildlife programme fronted by the brilliant Steve Backshall, a hunky young David Attenborough (according to Andrea) who has been to the gym.
On one particularly memorable episode, he was diving with the Humbolt Squid, which bit through his chain mail diving gear – ouch!
Written on the squid is 105 which refers to the edition size. We decided to keep this quite low as I really enjoyed creating him and he makes me laugh so we wanted to keep it very special.
Diablo Rojo refers to red devil, which is another name given to the squid by fishermen because of its ability to change colour to bright red when threatened.
Inside the box is a blindfolded fish, full of holes, smoking a last cigarette after facing the ‘firing squid’.
