Remember, it’s International Cephalopod Awareness Day! Send me links to your articles that express your appreciation of our 10- and 8-armed friends, and I’ll periodically put them up right here on Pharyngula.

    Thanks a lot. Caused a huge ruckus at my house. My boys were having a gorilla-octopus war, and I walked by and said it was International Cephalopod Day, so the octopus declared himself the winner by default, and gorilla boy ran off crying until I went and told him maybe that means we eat octopus and squid on International Cephalopod day, and then he was happy again.

    PZ-have you seen “The Future is Wild?” It was on Animal Planetlast night-the show focuses on speculation about the direction of future evolution. Cephalopods came out very nicely-giant land roaming versions, and some intelligent, emotional types.
