    Just to be sure you’re completely healthy, we’ll have to take a visible-ray picture of your insides, Mr. Squid.

    That would make a really cool nightlight.

    at least they should make really convenient research subjects, assuming they can be raised in lab conditions anyway. what did number so-and-so eat this morning, and is it getting digested yet? well, let’s see…

    You know, PZ, I always liked cephalopods, but these pictures you show us every week are so beautiful that they bring tears to my eyes. What Dawkins calls magic (in the emotional sense) overwhelms me. Thank you for reminding us just how wonderful the universe is that has such creatures in it.

    This is why cephalopods are superior to cats.

    I love your squid pictures. Variation is a beautiful thing.

    My kittens would disagree with you, and I’m going to side with my kittens.

    Cockatoos are friendly animals. One climbed onto me shoulder at a Zoo in Cairns. Would the bugger get off?

    Not sure I’d want this on my shoulder though.

    Although it is a cool animal. Further testament to the wonder that that is the FSM’s creation.

    Oh really?
    #8 – My kitty agrees with #12. She’s in the garage right now hunting those transparent devils! I think I’ll let her out on the kitty leash now. That’s the law in town now, don’t ya know?

    Exceptionally cool, even if it is wearing its sunglasses internally.

    That’s a baby, I take it? And yes, it does seem to have a pair of folded glasses inside it.
