Our own Dr. O'Shea got his own slice of the Web on the Discovery Channel's Website:

Seeking the Giant Squid

Cool things to come by all accounts; stay tuned.

FYI I've also added this link to our Ceph Web Directory in the Scientific Study category.

At last it's good to see a report in the popular press that does not exaggerate the size or capabilities of Architeuthis.

Good luck next year Steve!

Ahhhh.... I'm feeling the smug satisfaction that comes with access to inside info.
"There are creatures," O'Shea says, "that make the giant squid look like real puppies."
Love this quote!!! Wrapping my head around the image of archis with collars and nametags, playfully swatting at eachother and drooling. I guess drool is irrelevant underwater.

Good Luck with the preparations!

Congrats, Steve-O', fantastic webpage! Love the slideshow too! As a longtime Discovery Channel fan -- and almost-as-longime Steve-O' fan! -- I'm delighted to see that the general public will now be fully aware of one of the marine biology field's most remarkable scientist-explorers (Neil Diamond obsession notwithstanding :D ).

Now that we all know your "sekhrit" for attracting male Archis, it sounds like you'll have a very good chance of getting one on camera next year. (Though I was curious as to how one would go about attracting a female Archi -- same method, different pheromones?)

Great stuff -- and when your expeditions lead to another AMNH lecture appearance, it would be great if you, Shoba, and Kat could also join me and my XY contingent, Melissa and her sweetie, the Morellis, and whoever else is around for an Eastern US TONMOcon / Steve-O' Roast / :cheers: and pizza bash in Da Big Apple!

There'll be a no-tear(s) sequel(s) for sure; check out the second issue of New Scientist (August 2003) and you'll learn a lot more :grad: . There's a fantastic amount of work and progress that we have to do/achieve before we'll undertake it, and we're fast running out of time. Plans are for a Feb 2004 repeat quest for the larval giant, and a July/August (mid-winter) quest for the adult, both in 2004.

I'm busy collecting my marbles now, but I've either left or lost them in all sorts of places and don't think I'll have them all by Feb :bonk: . That's why I'm counting on Kat to have all of hers :usa: .

we'll just have to wait until 2004 then. :D
also in your interview with Maryalice Yakutchik you said,qoute:
"There are creatures," O'Shea says, "that make the giant squid look like real puppies."
now what are you really suggesting, a adult architeuthis 200 feet long or something of the sort. :)
