Neon Flying Squid From Jeff Albertson

Thought you might find this interesting. Similar to your explanation on pseudo-pterosaurs, with flying manta rays.
Neon Flying Squid (Ommastrephes bartramii) - Believe it or not, they exist. This animal is capable of flying more than 30 meters (98.4 feet) on the surface of w...ater. It opens its fins while airborne and It reaches an astonishing speed of 11.2 meters per second. Scientists believe that this creature might have evolved this trait to evade potential predators.

"We have discovered that squid do not just jump out of water but have a highly developed flying posture"
