Awesome! I gotta question the "realistic form and movement" of the octo kite, though.

Coooooooooooooooooooooool I want the squid one! (what a surprise!!) but ye gods what a price :shock:


We sell an octopus one for NZ$15 it's not so cool (actually it just kinda approximates an octi) looking but much easier on the wallet!

All,

Here's an impressive (and much more reasonably priced) big squid kite.

Still can't find a life-sized Mesonychoteuthis kite with glowing photophores. Guess I'll have to make one.

:twisted:
