Cephalopods

I was given to thinking about these things when I wrote my refutation of Creation Science. Who needs religeon when some sort of respect for Gia will fill your spiritual needs without demanding you reject empiracle evidence. Squid, Cuttlefish, Octopus and Nautilus are brilliant.

Architeuthis dux, known as the Giant squid. Big ones are the size of a bus. Surely the source of the Legend of the Kraken. There is a story, probably apocrophal that a large chunk of the budget for the BBC's lavish documentary series, "the blue planet" was spent trying to get film of these in the wild, alive. They failed, but recently a Japanese crew managed to catch a glimpse...

As always, when you name a species "Giant", something bigger comes along. Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni (collosal squid) has hooks on its suckers, but the one I really want scientists to find is the Collosal Octopus. Up to 30 metres across, and as yet undescribed.

Given that more people have been to the surface of the moon than down to the deep ocean trenches, there's a chance that something vast, mysterious and scary lurks down in the deep places of the world...

Did you study marine biology? This just might be the cutest things you've written.

No... parasites were my thing. I'm a frustrated marine biologist.

Always been fascinated by the giant squid, and not just because of those little pictures which describe its size by comparison with a double-decker bus.

I'd never heard of the Colossal Octopus, and the link provided was most interesting. I have no idea whether that horrendous thing that washed up was an octopus, blubber or some whale skin. But judging from the photos available, one thing is certain: it was bum ugly.

Everyone loves the idea of a proper, terrifying, real life monster of the deep.

The alien intelligence and eyes make it even more scary.
