Worth it for the link to Cephalopodcast.

I could not agree more. Be sure to also check out the octopodcast from TONMO.

Nice link. Some more squid stuff:

The feature story in this week's San Jose, Calif. alternative weekly Metro concerns an upsurge in the population of squid north of SF, its effect on other marine population, and a burgeoning squid hunting industry.

Unfortunately, the animal on the cover is an octopus.

Squid feature prominently in Jeff Vandermeer's City of Saints and Madmen. His city of Ambergris finds several uses for the creatures and even celebrates a festival of the freshwater squid. Vandermeer invents all sorts of fake history and culture for the city, including a bibliography of more than 100 squid-related works (including the summer read, The Torture Squid Beat Up Some Priests).

It's just a matter of time before we are all devoured by these beasts. It's why I keep clear of water, where they're tentacles might snakeout and pull me in.

cool link - I might have to pick up some of those t-shirts.

Its not a baby squid, its a full grown bobtail squid, Euprymna scolopes. I have desperately wanted some for pets for ages now. They are apparently fairly adaptable to captivity, live in groups, survive for more than one breeding cycle, and glow in the dark. How can you beat that (unfortunately, it seems they're only available from labs that only sell to other labs.)

Do they ship those t-shirts to R'lyeh? Customs here are a bitch...
