Flying Squids are squids native to the Wushanko Isles and the Eastern Sea. They are mentioned in player-owned port voyages, where we learn that they migrate west through Aminishi and have been known to congregate around a deserted port city on Thalassia.
They squirt an inky substance called squano if frightened or upset. The captains in the player-owned port state that they are not flying like birds or turtles, but that they move using prolonged jumps. However, the squids in-game seem to be able to hover and move freely about in the air, as if they were underwater.
Two specimens of the species can be found in-game:
- Squeck, a pet obtainable by hatching a slimy egg that can be found while fishing in Menaphos.
- Squick, a castaway that can be found on the Uncharted Island called Quis-land.
