    In Steve's case, that could take quite some time...

    :welcome: to tonmo!

    and methinks your image has a typo, or something... at least, it's not showing up for me...

    I remember when I was about 3 years old I went to Washington D.C. When I saw the carcass of a giant squid My dad, Grandpa and me spent... 5 HOURS JUST LOOKING AT THAT ANIMALS BODY! Ever since then I have dedicated my life to the research of cephlapods.I think that's pretty impressive for a 2 and a half year old girl don't you think so?

    Hi,

    I'm new to these Forums, but I crawl tonmo.com for information for some time now.

    To get back to the topic...

    I really like those invertebrates because they seem a lot like me, but much more intelligent :wink:

    To give you an impression of what I'd like to say:

    - They are VERY skilled if it comes to solving problems and doing something "manually" (should I say tentaclly...)

    - They look cool

    - They like sex ;)

    - They look nice and handsome, but underneath they're really badarse predators

    - As we might be the "most evolved" species on earths landmasses they definitely rule the deepsea

    - I think there's a nice english word that saysitall: tremendous

    Please excuse my bad english as I'm not a native speaker.

    regards,

    Frederik
