According to a claim in a bio-tech report, a 63-year-old woman “became pregnant” with 12 squid after eating calamari. The South Korean woman felt a sharp pain in her mouth while she was eating cooked squid.

The story comes from a statement made in a scientific paper from the National Center for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda, Maryland.

Doctors described what the woman was feeling in her mouth as “bug-liek organisms.”

When she was extensively examined, the doctors found :baby cephalopods” attached to her mouth. The pods are covered in a cement-like material that allow them to stick to surfaces, such as her mouth.

The pods contain an “ejaculatory apparatus” and sperm. The apparatus expels the sperm into the woman’s mouth.

Doctors removed the pods from the woman’s gums, tongue, and cheek. With more research, the doctors were able to determine that the pods were “squid spermatophores.”

Doctors assured us that this was an unusual case, and this portion of the squid’s intern organs is usually removed before human consumption.

The Center’s paper said about the situation that “she did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately. She complained of a pricking and foreign-body sensation in the oral cavity.

Twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms stuck in the mucous membrane of the tongue, cheek, and gingiva [gums] were completely removed, along with the affected mucosa.

On the basis of their morphology and the presence of the sperm bag, the foreign bodies were identified as squid spermatophores.

According to Science 2.0, a spermatophore is similar to a cup of semen.

These type of incidents appear most often in the Far East, where raw fish is consumed. When squid is prepared in the west, the internal organs are removed so there is no chance of eating spermatophores.

According to the Biological Bulletin, ”spermatophores are either transferred to the female by the male’s hectocotylus, a specialised arm, or by a long penis, which is present in species that lack hectocotyli.

After being discharged from the spermatophore in the spermatophoric reaction, the sperm mass is encased in a thin covering, with the cement body at one end. This discharged structure, the spermatangium, may attach to the skin of the female or be deeply embedded in her skin or muscle.
