    Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry has "Monsters of the Deep" until the end of April, and it includes a 32' giant squid model. Unfortunately, it'll be gone before TONMOCon, but if anyone will be in the area...

    I live in Tampa, so I'll try to post some pics for further analysis at a later date. I must agree with you so far, though...

    I work at a zoo that has a manatee hospital, and have helped with many treatments... when you find yourself at the bottom of a drained pool with 1,000 pounds of pissed-off sirenia, it can be pretty unnerving. Just saying.

    mermaid = sirenia
