    This might not be the right place for this, and someone else might have found it already, but here's an interesting page I found while looking for octopus images:

    SUNSHINE DOLL & TEDDY BEAR SHOP

    The only teddy cephalopod they have is an octopus, but most of their other stuff is pretty cool (that orangutan kills me :lol: ).

    I'm sure John kept his cup full all night so Pseudoteuthis wouldn't have to pour his own. John, have you found a sake emoticon to go with the martini glasses, beer and wine?

    No I haven't... I think I'm in a minority of people who like Sakes and Plum Wines, and sake icons aren't easy to find... Maybe I'll look harder...

    I just went to The Underwater World here played with stingrays and sharks and came back with a 30cm long soft-toy cuttlefish which apparently is called Dany :heee: . I wanted to get pics and videos of their officinalis and latimanus :cuttle: feeding but the digi-cam is in Tokyo.

    I would also like to post a pic of Dany but can't (see above) Maybe sometime next week though. :?
