I could use one of those machines very nicely! "Glowing Sucker Octopus" interesting! A deep sea creature I'm assuming?:oops: I see that is so on second look. Those are great pics!

this has some of the same pics, but I think some different ones as well. lots o' deep-sea weirdness: http://science.readigg.com/description/16137.html

The spookfish looks implausibly like an owl. Andrea sent me the link as "this has to be photoshopped, right?" but I recognize some of the pics as real MBARI footage.

edit: actually, it looks like this is just some of the same pics, but they're all on one page, so they're easier to view...

I MUST have a ping-pong tree sponge in my new appartment! Do you think it's available in a 12 Volt edition, accepting halogen bulbs?
