Skittersquids have a chance to appear close to Ocean Fishes. The number and spawn rates depend on the Moon Cycle. They spawn the most during the New Moon. When killed, Skittersquids will drop one Monster Meat and have a 33% chance to drop a Light Bulb.
Skittersquids can travel both on land and in the Ocean. Skittersquids will produce light while their eye is open. When attacked, Skittersquids will launch globs of ink at players to obscure their vision, and do a spinning blade attack.
