    Such a gentle name for such a vicious predator. Name him Rex, or Killer, or Dr. Death.

    Dr. Snuggles "Friend to the animal world" was a character created by Jeffrey O'Kelly. Later turned into an animated program produced in Holland, English-language voice characterizations by the late Sir Peter Ustinov.

    Personally, I like naming against type. Dr. Snuggles fits the bill perfectly for a voracious uber-predator.

    Capital idea, Nancy! Our cuttle population seems to be increasing (particularly here in the States - thanks Righty!) and I think our finned-and-tentacled friends deserve their own list.

    OK, may take a few days to post it - I'll put the list at the top of this forum for now.

    Don't forget that in the UK Mikey and Colin have a number of cuttles, so we're not just limited to this country.

    I certainly wasn't forgetting our non-U.S. cuttle population!

    I name the entire group now instead of individuals...I like to pretend they have a group mind. "Shrimp - you will be digestulated"

    Good to see this happening over there thanks to Rich.

    Well my group of 10 became 11 last night - thanks to 2 months of mis-counting or a hide-away!!

    No wonder 10 shrimp fed always ended up in 2 fighting!! Anyway - I aint got names for them all!! hehehe

    Hey Mikey!

    I really think keeping a group is going to pay off. I believe you are going to be a daddy soon! Then we need 6 more people like us in each country... :D

    Rarely, if ever, have I been so wound up about a new development in the animal trade. You guys have really spearheaded a new fascination in the big wide world of aquaculture, and deserve a huge pat on the back and a cold one !!
    I am looking forward to getting cuttlefish like a kid on December 23rd looking at the boxes, and it is a very,very refreshing feeling !
