Feb 16, 2009: Promachoteuthis sulcus

Promachoteuthis sulks? Whatzat?
It's a squid, a new kind of squid they found 2,000 meters down, off Tristan da Cunha in the south Atlantic, which is about as far from anywhere as you can get.

Actually they've only found one immature (guess she chewed gum and said "ya know" a lot) female, but she's so different they couldn't connect her with any of the current known squid family.

If you eat this one, watch out for the bite.



Jinx will love this.

om nom nom nom, delighted squid. or squid delight with soy sauce?



Sundae  Monday Feb 16 06:15 AM

Oh crikey. Squid mouth gave me the shivers.



Sheldonrs  Monday Feb 16 06:48 AM

At least now I now what happened to Grandma's dentures after they fell overboard on that cruise.

I think the red wine will be nice with this dish.
So much for the adage "get 'em while they're young, 'cause when they get old they grow teeth".
Note to self: No oral encounters with this species.

Calamari! Yum.

I thought squid had more of a beak-like situation going on?



Tawny  Monday Feb 16 06:11 PM

Who says that's her mouth?



capnhowdy  Monday Feb 16 07:52 PM

Who said it was a her?



capnhowdy  Monday Feb 16 07:53 PM

Who said that was a her?



capnhowdy  Monday Feb 16 07:56 PM

Solly

That squid has teeth that would make a ortodontist proud. Look how straight they are! But they are kind of yellow. Maybe she smokes.



capnhowdy  Monday Feb 16 08:11 PM

Looks 'shopped to me.

Bruce: you up to shenannigans?

The teeth are one of the main reasons they decided this was a new (to science) kind of squid.
