In a article that said that the only squid you can see is a cuttlefish in a tank..that is so wrong! First of all, cuttles are not squids and the person who said it must do more research as I've seen squid in aquariums you know and they were about the size Dr.SOS has on squidcam...

Did some research and found some articles...all saying the same thing so far. I'm rooting for a monster Octo myself, but am figuring it's probably just whale blubber.

maybe it a giant octo bigger than Haliphron atlanticus? I know it sounds like I'm crazy, but who knows? Only hoping that there would be one that big.

Eric, we're all with you hoping for the discovery of an octo bigger than H. atlanticus! This board was really busy when the
Mesonychoteuthis specimen was hauled in. An octo that could be measured in unofficial London bus units would keep us online for days. :shock:

It's definately either Rush Limbaugh or Patrick Moore, but there's only one way to find out, we have to find out if the thing can play the xylophone!

It's a spicy cambodian seafood dish, that is composed of a lobster drizzled with globs of liquified squid, served cold in a wicker basket.

I'm sorry, I'm quite fond of Pat, too. But you cannot honestly say that he can't play the xylophone!

:hmm:
It's either my ex-mother-in-law or whale blubber. I'm inclined to go with the first suggestion.
