    So I was wandering around HK and decided to go to the Science Museum to spend an afternoon there. I was buying a ticket when I noticed that there was a giant poster of some sort of deep sea squid (not a Vamp, but it's one that's displayed on the top of the page right of the TONMO.com search bar.)
    So I basically skimmed through all the other exhibits and charged my way to the new "Deep Sea Exhibit" and most of it was kind of neat I guess. Except for the fact that it seems like everything there is from MBARI. Saw some high-res photos of cephs (there were a lot of ceph photos there compared to other deep-sea critters) and also some preserved specimens of deep-sea anglerfish, vipers and vertabrae filth.
    I was kind of proud when this little 7 year old boy pointed out what animal was shown correctly in one of those stock-National Geographic videos in the exhibit. (Most of the footage was from the MBARI video shown in TonmoCon 1)
    I left the exhibit and bought myself 3 bookmarks with photos of cephs on it.

    That is all. (And I sure do like to ramble):oops:

    Unfortunatly, they had a extremely strict No photography policy, so no. However, I might dump my cephy bookmarks into the scanner and post them later.
