Studies from the Mexican Pacific Ocean have revealed a high consumption of the pelagic red crab (Pleuroncodes planipes), as well as a variety of squid, including Histioteuthis heteropsis, Gonatus californiensis, and Ancistrocheirus lesueurii (Markaida and Sosa-Nishizaki, 2010; Hernandez-Aguilar et al., 2016).
Four species of the genus Histioteuthis have been previously identified in the stomachs of Z.
Six squid species were identified from the scats: Loligo opalescens, Onychoteuthis banksii, Dosidicus gigas, Histioteuthis dofleini, Pterygioteuthis giardi and Symplectoteuthis luminosa.
A total of 302 cephalopod lower beaks were recovered, which was identified as Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni (n = 99), Kondakovia longimana (n = 22), Gonatus antarcticus (n = 57), Haliphron atlanticus (n = 19), two species of Histioteuthis spp.
It accounted for 40% of the total number of beaks (n = 1302), the other commonest species being the histioteuthid Histioteuthis eltaninae (13%), K.
Identifiable squid beaks represented 4 families; 2 identified species, Nototodarus hawaiiensis and Sandalops melancholicus; and 3 recognizable genera, Histioteuthis, Onykia, and Walvisteuthis (Table 2).

The scaling relationships for Histioteuthis heteropsis (y = [2.10x.sup.-0.25[pm]0.14]; [r.sup.2] = 0.55; P [less than] 0.01; n = 11), Chiroteuthis calyx ([y = 4.20x.sup.-0.39[pm]0.25]); [r.sup.2] = 0.76; P = 0.01; n = 7), and Japetella diaphana ([y = 0.40x.sup.-0.29[pm]0.15]; [r.sub.2] = 0.88; P = 0.004; n = 11) were within the normal range found for aerobic metabolic scaling in a variety of animals (Schmidt-Nielsen, 1984).
