OMG Live Giant Squid Photographed!
Came across this article via Ars.
If you didn’t know, I’m a huge fan of the cepholopod
class of animals. The giant squid is one of those rare beasts
that we know exists via dead specimens that we’ve found, but have yet
to observe, live, in the wild.
So this is a very cool discovery!
Yet another victory for biologists – and another animal released from "myth" status, like the Coelacanth was freed from it’s "fossil" state some 30-odd years ago.
What I’m wondering is when they’ll find those secksy mermaids 😉 (yeah, yeah, manatees, blah, blah)
