    Squids are called that because their riding looks like a school of startled immature squid

    Lightning fast in a straight line
    Almost stop to turn
    Lightning fast in straight line

    That's a backronym. In any case, look for the 'squid purity test', which has been online since at least the mid-90s. It has good examples of gear and behavior of the common squidus maximus.

    Of course, HST's "sausage creature" is required reading for the genre.
