If you are a fan of giant squid, you must read this post on Pharyngula about the fate of the collosal squid specimen captured on film recently.
I’m sure all of us cryptozoologically inclined persons were just enthralled at the thing. It appears more video is on its way. (And, I’m sure, a Discovery channel documentary.) There is some good advice in the post – always have your camera ready.
I love what Dr. O’Shea says about the squid’s brain. You know, we’ve been wrong about the mental capacity of animals before…
Just a note, the author of Pharyngula is a HUGE cephalpod fan. There is a ton of squidy fun going on around the internet. He lets us in on some he’s found. Check it out.
