Colossal Squid

They’ve found a specimen of ginormous squid, more or less intact. I always forget about the parts of the world that can still be mapped in pictures of dragons and sea serpents – probably because nobody actually draws dragons on maps any more, which is a damn shame.

I’m taking two paleobiology courses this term, as a hopefully gpa-enhancing lark. I spent two hours yesterday discussing various ways to make squiggly marks on rocks [link is only useful to those with a privileged IP address, sorry], and this morning watched a video on cnidarians prior to discussing various extinct things that might or might not be sponges. I’m going to start doodling dragons on my notebooks.
