    Anyone attending TONMOCON IV knows that Peter is a Philosophy prof who has taken a shine to cephalopods and is investing some of his time in resarching their behavior (see original article that introduced Peter and TONMO). He has spent time with JuggleMatt at the Jarvis Bay site and we are hoping to have him report back in at TONMOCON V.

    Hopefully we will be able to add updates automatically to our news feeds but here are the first two entries in The Giant Cuttlefish, A blog about cephalopods, evolution, and the mind. Posting twice each month.

    Peter has added an email subscription feature (and a new entry on octopuses) to his cephalopod blog. Look on the right side, fill in your email, click subscribe and confirm the incoming notice.

    Entry #6 gives a brief of his impressions coming upon a smooth sting ray in shallow water and an aging cuttle.

    Thank you for sharing this! I find my time so unmanageable lately that I've completely lost track of all those blogs I intended to read. Now I can at least guarantee that the email will be shuffled into an email folder awaiting that much-dreamed-of free time. :)

    Peter's latest entry is a nice into to octopus camouflage, questioning how it is possible and some great pictures.
