Giant Squids, yuck

Yet another reason to hate Giant Squids. Isn't it about time we rid the seas of these horrible creatures?

""The male giant squid has to use a puny 15-gram brain to coordinate 150 kilograms of weight, 10 metres of length and a 1.5-metre-long penis," he says. "He physically plunges this penis into the female's arms, which are rather unfortunately right next to her beak. Because he is coordinating so much with so little, I think occasionally bits get chewed off when they inadvertently get too close to the beak."

I'm only afraid of Giant Squids.
It's something about the eyes...

I fear damn near everything that swims in the sea!!!

Except for giant mantas. They are stupid, pleasant creatures.

Hmmm... I'd guess that Bush masses around 85 kilos...how does that work out proportionately?

scary
I think I'm scared of them 'cuz of that Disney movie that was made about the Jules Verne book ("20,000 Leagues..."?) And, then there was the children's book that I read that had the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History come to life! 8-O

I was *really* scared by a "Space 1999" episode that had a giant-space-squid that spit you out as a charred corpse if you had the bad luck to come near it!

I love to eat squid.

Cuttle fish are just the cutest and coolest animals! :-) (I will *not* eat cuttle fish!)
