Build A Squid!

File this under terribly addictive: Build A Squid.  The Colossal Squid Exhibition has an interactive online websource where you can build your own squid – complete with fancy colors and patterns – and then track them!  My squid’s name is “Oohla” and if you want to, you can track him as well!  Last I saw he had had a fight with a leopard seal.  Since Oohla is only a single kilogram I’m sort of wondering how he survived that interaction. 

And for a nerdy side note, did you know that the leopard seal is one of the few phocid species where females regularly grow larger than males?  Its true.

  1. You’re right… Squid building is rather addicting! Maybe Oohla is also a wizard squid, wielding intense anti-leapard seal magic? Also, I like your nerdy side note. =)
