Alien-like squid found 2.5 kilometers deep...
« on: November 25, 2008, 11:43:39 AM »
Err linky!

Quote
A mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) underwater, a remote control submersible's camera has captured an eerie surprise: an alien-like, long-armed, and—strangest of all—"elbowed" Magnapinna squid.

The article is a bit... slanted, but cool nonetheless.

-giggles-  "Do tentacles hang from your elbows?  Do you flutter your ears and float through life, waiting for your next victim lover, ensnaring them with your suction cups, drawing them in for an evening of biting with your cleverly hidden beak?"

Cephalopods are awesome. Especially Cuttlefish with their wacky color changing abilities.

Squid are my favorite.  Ever since biology in 10th grade...when we dissected one.  Most of the class was freaking out, I was in total love.

I'd give a go with a bit of tentacle :) would be awesome to be completely dominated by it.
