Took this picture of an art studio in one of my neighboring towns. I'll add it to the Gallery as well.

Hey, that's pretty good!

There are more octos around in public places than you'd think - got to get back to Galveston and get a pic of the huge octo above The Octopus Grill!

Cool!


I found out that they changed the name of my old preschool to "Octopus". It's a daycare now, but still... Good old octopodes have a good reputation here :)

Fandabbydozy Tony, no frontages like that here in sunny Norfolk just security guards & "pay or die" on the till :cry:
I kid you not !
oh okay, a bit ! :roll:

She seems to be holding a scrubbing brush!!
Jean, sorry to correct you but I believe it is a Winkle pie which mermaids traditionally eat on a stick.
In her other hand should be a winkle gun but I fear someone has made off with it.

Also, I'm not a pro-fish person but I keep 'em, catch 'em & eat 'em & I know a piscatorial caudal fin when I see one & that mermaid ain't packing a mammalian tail piece !
Hands up who thinks caudal peduncle is the top anatomical label ? :thumbsup:

Sorry but it still looks like a loo brush to me :D

Jean, I have done a bit of investigating have found that only Baltic mermaids partake of (curried) winkle pie so you may well be correct though I've never seen a mermaid in a pink tabard.
I have also wondered as to whether the octopus has just had his contacts cleaned ? please note you should never clean your contacts with a loo brush (or a winkle pie) :yuck:

I just knew you'd be a caudal peduncle fan 8)
Could be a manatee or dugong tail twisted to the side???
Indeed, indeed but from the pictorial evidence the tail lacks a little of the paddlosity associated with both these Floridian & Antipodean aquatic mammalians ce n'est pas ?

:band: How much is that dorado in the window...........?

I think you'll find that the pink tabard is what shows she's a cleaner mermaid! When she moves on from her juvenile phase she'll get the customary shell bikini top!

Contacts????????I done even want to go there :yuck: makes mine swim just to think of it :yuck: :yuck: :yuck:

Absolutely....love that latin
sounds so much better that "tail"

yes but the gentic blending can soften some features so that the tail has less paddlosity.

Jean, I was waffling, your input had conviction.

Now I've put you on a pedestal & you are a pedagogue of things marine,
you got any ideas bout what my avatar is ?
I found it on yahoo & as a fan of the weird & wonderful of the abyss I thought pukka ! but I gone lost gen on what it is !

For inspiration I take a hit of Dolmio tomato soup with a hot chocolate chaser, tape a Dextrosol to each temple, the solar plexus & have a ProPlus sandwich :rainbow:

Hi Spartacus,

Your avatar looks as if it's either a pteropod or a heteropod!!!! Sea butterflies! pteropods are snails which swim! the foot has two wing like protrusions that they use to "fly" with. Heteropods are similar but are more like a slug with wings. Yours looks more like a pteropod to me (slthough I could be wrong!!)

(on this stuff I have an unfair advantage! I work in an aquarium and marine lab!)


For inspiration I'm strictly a caffeine girl......although choc has caffiene right????? :D

Cheers

Jean, you meeet some of the cleverest people around these parts :notworth:
I will investigate further.
Snails with a tendency to swimming in my pond don't get long to practice which is why they've not yet taken that evolutionary step perhaps ?

Biggest aquarium I've had was 4 x 1.5 x 1.5 ft & I definitely couldn't get in it in my fittest stage of development.
You're obviously quite small or supple.

ProPlus is concentrated caffeine without the brown muck attached :shock:
