The New Scientist article has been published. Steve O'Shea is freely quoted so TONMO has already provided much of the information first, but it is good to see an overview of the state of knowledge on giant squid in print.
Myopsida, you absolute scoundrel you!! I thought my glasses needed adjusting when I saw 'your version' of the cover!!tonmo said:-- not only is it probably not permissable for us to reproduce the photo here (and it is quite likely/possible that New Scientist will be around here), but you also doctored it (pun not really intended)...
it isnt out up here yet...i went searching and found out its available the week after the cover date (aug 2)Steve O'Shea said:.... I still haven't read the article. Down here at the very bottom of the world it takes a few days before magazines make their way over.
Woo-hoo! Great news!! Haven't got my copies of these publications yet, but I will... even the SeaSpray one, somehow...Steve O'Shea said:I guess nobody cares that we also have a 4 page spread in the latest issue of SeaSpray (August/September 2003 issue); I think it is available in NZ and Australia only. (Tony, www.TONMO.com does get mention in this magazine article .... as 'one of the best sites around')... and we're presently doing a mini-doc on squid and fisheries.... busy times these are.
This is purely my opinion:tonmo said:certainly the octopuses in this forum have displayed some very clever and what would seem to be "thoughtful" behavior.
