Googly eyes

Some of you are going to love having another squid to add to the Ugly Repository. Behold the glass squid, also known as the cranch squid. There are 60 speices of glass squid, and I have no idea which one this is, or even whether or not it is an adult. Those eyes should give a clue, though. It was found in an undersea mountain range in the North Atlantic. But I think I may have encountered one of these on Super Mario Brothers.

Thanks for the photo,
Miss Cellania.

I call such cephalopod larvae CUTHULHUIDS. ;)

It's interesting to note that the Glass Squids include our ginormous friend the Colossal Squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) which is a fact that continues to blow my mind. Evidently most members of this "clad" tend to be a bit more fragile and transparent that our dear "Crach/Kracken" inspired friend.

Take some time to look up pictures of the larval form of Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni and you'll see that he/she is ADORABLE. ;)

Again, sorry for the Geek-OUT. I've been away from the site for a while. :( ;)

I used to glue teeny googly eyes on my picture ID badge at work. It was always interesting to see who noticed.

sometimes you can go to earn the Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the potbs gold to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the potbs Doubloon for your own. you can earn the potbs money alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can go to buy potbs Doubloon as the rewards in this game.

The game has a lot of LOTRO Gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much Lord Of The Rings Gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can go to buy LOTRO Gold in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the cheap Lord Of The Rings Gold you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone.
