While looking for a ceph ring :smile: I found this. A bit wierd/arty but interesting:

A stunning short film by the trio of South African artists known as The Blackheart Gang, The Tale of How is the story of a giant octopus who consumes the kiwi bird-like denizens of a tiny island. One of them places messages in a bottle, in the hope that someone will come to rescue them. But who?

Did anyone scroll down the page and see the video of the japanese kids show? odd....but then again, we used to have the polka-dot-door and the Hilarious House of Freightenstein.....kids shows of the 70s and 80s were all odd. But nice find :smile:

NONCeph but Staff related

Another rabbit trail (looking for an old interview for Linda where Roy pronounces Abdopus and aculeatus :razz:) brought this 2001 video up in my scan. Be sure you have an hour as it is a nice interview style lecture by Roy about mantis shrimp as well as thought about becoming a marine biologist.

I did finally find a video of Roy talking about the A. aculeatus mating observations and gives pronounciation (but not the one I was looking for)
