    Phaaahhhh,

    You beat me to it.

    I'm not sure, but slide #2 shows what looks like an enucleated Architeuthis eyeball in someone's hand; I thought it was the beak at first, but I think there's a lens in there.

    Also noteworthy is the slide showing a bulldog emerging from the squid's mantle.

    Thanks, Greg and Phil.

    "The largest giant squid ever found was nearly 60 feet long and weighed 2,000 pounds."

    Who discovered that squid, pray tell? The renowned teuthologist Dr. Munchausen? :mrgreen:
