    What will they do when they "anatomize" it and find bones?

    I'm kinda glad that globsters don't fossilize, at least not as globsters. :sly:

    After looking at that picture, I was wondering what about its appearance made them think it was an octopus? Then I looked up what globster meant... haha, I agree. It's just kind of a blob of unidentifiable sea creature. But I hope it is a giant octopus!
