    This is ventral, right?

    "Two large dark-coloured eyes were regarding me steadfastly. The mass that framed them, the head of the thing, was rounded, and had, one might say, a face. There was a mouth under the eyes, the lipless brim of which quivered and panted, and dropped saliva. The whole creature heaved and pulsated convulsively. A lank tentacular appendage gripped the edge of the cylinder, another swayed in the air."

    Did you read the comments at the end? The short-sighted, narrow perspective of some of those people is mind boggling!

    Octopods is the correct plural for octopod, referring to members of the order Octopoda.

    There was a thread referencing this last year...the concensus was that there really was no "correct" plural, it just depended on where you were from.

    Ah well, as long as we understand. Bloody latin.
