Kraken: The Curious, Exciting, and Slightly Disturbing Science of Squid
2 journalers for this copy...
Fascinating if a bit too easy to put down (I like *stories*).
For instance, this book introduced me to the vampire squid from hell (Vampyroteuthis infernalis)
If you want to make a cephalopod of your own, I recommend The Cute Octopus's
version...although my new favorite handmade critter has to be Spock-topus
, recently spotted on Epbot. :)
Oh, and I like the oceanic endpapers. The gigantic neuron was memorable too.

Nice book. I had to go to youtube to find the octopus that carried a cocnut shell around. Very strange. This is the point of the book: What we KNOW about cephlapods can fit on the fingers of two hands. What we don't know is legion. This book is a smattering of facts that researchers are working on, and more about what they don't know yet. I found it frustrating, enlightening, and intriguing. I will keerp my eyes out for more by this author. Thanks for including it in the bookbox, hyphen8, I'll see if I can find it a new reader while on vacation.
