    I just listened to this and last months octopodcasts, very nice. WK dont sound like a southern Kiboko, and Collin actually pronounces it with a K sound, Fascinating... 8-)

    and a belated Happy Kiboko appreciation day!

    Tony I could listen to you pushing phone buttons all day ;)

    If you want some more of my band's music for the next 'cast, there's no more squid songs but lots of Lovecrafty, math, spacey, and superhero ones.

    Hi Everyone -

    thanks for the birthday wishes, I have been run off my feet since then but some of it was 'good fun work' so cant complain. Put a ring on my first bird of prey just yesterday - a kestrel.

    Kevin - In the UK the hard Greek version tends to be used so its kephalopods and kephalothorax etc etc.

    cheers for now
    Colin

    Wow! Any pictures?

    Must be the Seltic influence, er, I mean the Keltic influence...

    (images of art involving Cephalopod arms tied in Celtic knots pop into my mind)

    Colin,
    I just listened to the Octopodcast and felt like I just heard a kindred soul. to put me thourgh school in marine biology, I have worked for the US Forest Service as a wildlife biological technician. I as well have done some bird banding in my time here (just using mist netting. We have never visited nests to get the chicks), as well as Bull Trout pit-tagging (a threatened species), trackplate surveys for American Marten (sables) and Fisher (a bigger sable), hair traps for Canadian Lynx. My passion (as far as terrestrial animals goes) is in herps, and have become known as a sort of amphibian expert on the local forest, and I have done survey work with the Columbia Spotted Frog (a candidate threatened species.) I just wanted to let you know that I could very much identify with you work, and it is good to know there are other cephalopod lovers with that background.

    Hi Kirt

    Its one of the amazing things about this website that people interested in cephalopods also have so much else in common... Sounds like a very similar background!

    Colin :)
