WHOA! Tintenfisch got it!!!!!!
She's got skills; shame she's got a one-way ticket on a slow-boat to China.

Nautilus wasn't actually the one I was thinking about ... so there are 2 (you've got to find the other)

I suppose Teleoteuthis compacta (now Onychoteuthis) only counts as a mobile service provider... ;)
Oh my dear sweet Je--

That's damn good, Tintenfisch, but not the critter I was thinking of. You've got three of the letters in hand...you must be holding back.

Squid whose name sounds like a mobile-phone maunfacturer...

A squid who's trying to gobble up other squid's names and replace them with its own...

Aw, shucks. :roll:

Indeed... I think the name came up as a pun on another forum? I will let others guess. I suspect the answer is almost unique.. ;)

Hmmmmm. Could be any of Argonautidae (Argonauta spp.), Ocythoidae (Ocythoe), Tremoctopodidae (Tremoctopus spp.) or Alloposidae (= Haliphronidae, Haliphron ). I need more clues for this one.....

Re the telephone one .... first letter O, last letter A? (Tintentoontipplekakafish told me....)

Adding to the insanity...

1. Bermudan....
2. May not exist....
3. Enourmous- 200 feet long.....

Let's see you work this out!

PS- it's a loch ness monster kinda thing, so if you're researching, don't try cephalopod sites. You won't find it.

One of them is right, two more clues

1. Nobody has kept one alive in an aquarium for two weeks
2. The females egg cases are prized finds for beachcombers.

Now that Steve knows exactly which one it is, lets have someone else guess.
