i just think it is sad that they glossed over the fact that they had a large hook at the end with the shrimp and hooked a tentacle, which was ultimately separated from the squid as it escaped.

And the Japanese try to ply themselves as innocent. Their scientists are some of the most cold-blooded in the world, IMO.

Well, when those bad boys come rampaging through Tokyo, don't call me for help unless I get to bring my 280mm atomic cannon (currently on display at Aberdeen). Twisted Evil

Actually starfish can actually clone that way. As long as there is part of the center disk connected to the severed leg it will regrow the rest of the body. Some cephalopods can regenerate a limb like a lizard can though. Octopi can. I guess giant squid can't though.

Ok dumb question: If this is the first time a giant squid has been seen alive, how does this guy (or anyone for that matter) know whether or not the tentacles regrow? Just because they are Squid XL(TM) doesn't mean they necessarily have the same physiology.


On a side note, is there a link that shows how to add special characters in BBCode? (e.g. TM, R(registered), french accent letters, tilde over an 'n', etc.)

You can type the alt-code directly in, or copy/paste from something like word, which will autoformat the nice ones... for example, in Word, for ?, , and , type "(tm) " and it will autoformat. Also, you can set an international keyboard to easily get the foreign language ones. , , and are the ones I use most often, so I know where they are, and I can just hit left-alt+left-shift and type away.
