i guess this should be 'cuttlefish' rather than 'squid'? as it's apparently the same as 乌贼、墨鱼 etc

LA: 軟體動物名。體扁,袋形,頭兩側有一對大眼,視覺敏銳,瞳孔為W形,口的邊緣有五對腕足(中有兩條較長且滿布吸盤,稱為觸腕)​,體內有墨囊,遇到危險時噴出黑色液體,以掩護逃走。生活在海洋裡,捕食魚、蝦、螃蟹及小型軟體動物。也作「烏賊」、「烏鰂」、「墨斗魚」、「墨魚」。

Editor: Well, LA says 瞳孔為W形 and the web says you can "gaze into their eyes to tell them apart: squid have round pupils, where cuttlefish pupils are W-shaped." So I guess 花枝 is indeed cuttlefish.
Diff:
- 花枝 花枝 [hua1 zhi1] /spray (sprig of a plant with blossoms)/squid (on dining menus)/(literary) beautiful woman/
+ 花枝 花枝 [hua1 zhi1] /spray (sprig of a plant with blossoms)/cuttlefish (on dining menus)/(literary) beautiful woman/
