    :cuttlehi:Hello. I haven't posted recently, and that is because have been so busy veiwing all things that Denver has to offer.
    :sun:First, I went to the Downtown Aquarium. They have a very nice octopus. (the first one I've seen in real life!) And also recieved a penny with an octopus on it. (very cool!)
    Then, I went to the zoo and found no cephalopod items of any kind.
    :read: I went to the museum of nature and science and saw some very cool displays of ammonites and other prehistoric cephalopods. Also some ammonite:ammonite: fossils available at moderate prices in the gift shop.
    :histio: Just south of Denver, in Colorado springs, I visited Cave of The winds and saw even more ammonite items in that gift shop.

    :belemnit: Denver is a nice place for cephalopods. Consider making a trip.

    :oops:Sorry for not posting for awhile.
    Have any of you TONMOers been to Denver?:confused: And if so, have you seen the cephalopod things?
    :wink: PS. There will be an octopus special on the Science Channel July 12th at 9:00 pm, depending on where you live.

    :notworth:Thanks a bunch

    PSS: Later that summer, I went to Shedd Aquarium In Chicago and saw the same octopus-themed penny!
