(ANIMAL PHOTOS) CALIFORNIA — While kayaking off the California coast by San Diego, Jon Schwartz was surrounded by a giant shoal of squid. Luckily for us, he took pictures of the incredible sight. Jon Schwartz told us, “They completely surrounded me and I was able to reach out and grab them: they were using me as a defense against the marauding birds and larger fish.” See the amazing photos here. — Global Animal
