Actually Stooo they have been around vastly longer than us - cephalopods for over 500 million years and the oldest (known) fossil octopus is Pohlsepia mazonensis at 296 million years old.

They are well known to be incredibly intelligent creatures - one of the animal kingdom's great geniuses. :cuppaT:

Nice specimen of Titanus giganteus - not the largest ever captured by any means but a decent size nonetheless. :cuppaT:

I wonder if the thread should be combined with the science one mods?

Just a thought. :smilin:

The animals that are almost invisible and the largest creature on the planet lunge feeding.

Yes these belong on the nature thread but they are a bizarre and random after all!

The demon ducks of doom! :ooer:

Just wondering, what gets you so excited about those ugly creatures? I'm sure it's interesting to know and learn about them, but you seem to be in love with them like others are with little puppies and kittens :paranoid:


Just quickly popping on here to reply to you Hol. :smilin:

I think that every species is truly beautiful in it's own way - especially to those of their of own kind.

I find them all to be fascinating, unique and lovely to look at - part of the incredible tapestry of life on this beautiful planet - itself merely a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam and lost in the awesome vastness of the Cosmos. :cuppaT:
