    Looks like a translucent (mostly transparent) bag of mostly water as an old SF line* goes – IOW, just like us!

    Well, except for the semi-transparent / translucent part.

    Neat though.


    * A Star Trek episode I think but – as always – could be mistaken.

    Octopuses and squid are big brained species that use much of their mental powers to adjust their own appearances.

    Quantum spirituality, eh Chopra?

    I don’t know if you love cephalopods so much you are unable to eat them, but we Portuguese love them at the table.
    Look at these Cuttlefish in black ink.
    The fun part is that eating the animal with its ink gets you a very black mouth.

    It reminds me of Ziggy Stardust.

    I am unable to eat octopus but I do eat squid. There’s nothing rational behind it. I worry myself sometimes.

    PZ Myers,

    Wow! That’s an interesting looking creature!
