"Tree lobster thought to be extinct for 80 years found alive clinging 500ft up on remote Pacific rock taller than Empire State Building"

Wow, way to hang in there!

I want one as a pet. They look really cool. Plus it would freak out quite a few people.

I know this isn't a ceph.
It's a newly discovered, pretty little crab in Shari's color.

No Tom, he really meant Shari's color. I had a strange reaction to the sun and and my skin turned a weird purple color.
Everything seems so much better when the sky is filled with beautiful colors.

Here's a school of Caribbean Reef Squid. Filmed a couple days ago off Grenada.

Cute little buggers. Looks like they're swimming in formation.

I saw a few schools of them, they were probably about 12" long.
Next I'll have to post the Eel vs Octopus video. It's not good for the Cephalopod though.

Another, not great quality video, and youtube faded it a bit, but....
Here it is, a sad octopus video, but a happy day for the eel. I don't know why the eel ties itself in knots, but it looks cool.

I haven't posted a ceph here for a while. Here's a pretty incredible cuttlefish, click here to see the video (the photo is just a screen grab)
