Dr. Snuggles "Friend to the animal world" was a character created by Jeffrey O'Kelly. Later turned into an animated program produced in Holland, English-language voice characterizations by the late Sir Peter Ustinov.

Personally, I like naming against type. Dr. Snuggles fits the bill perfectly for a voracious uber-predator.

Hmmmm...looks like I need to start a list of our Tonmo cuttles, like the list we have for octopuses!

Capital idea, Nancy! Our cuttle population seems to be increasing (particularly here in the States - thanks Righty!) and I think our finned-and-tentacled friends deserve their own list.

OK, may take a few days to post it - I'll put the list at the top of this forum for now.

Don't forget that in the UK Mikey and Colin have a number of cuttles, so we're not just limited to this country.

I name the entire group now instead of individuals...I like to pretend they have a group mind. "Shrimp - you will be digestulated"

Good to see this happening over there thanks to Rich.

Well my group of 10 became 11 last night - thanks to 2 months of mis-counting or a hide-away!!

No wonder 10 shrimp fed always ended up in 2 fighting!! Anyway - I aint got names for them all!! hehehe

Hey Mikey!

I really think keeping a group is going to pay off. I believe you are going to be a daddy soon! Then we need 6 more people like us in each country... :biggrin2:

Rarely, if ever, have I been so wound up about a new development in the animal trade. You guys have really spearheaded a new fascination in the big wide world of aquaculture, and deserve a huge pat on the back and a cold one !!
I am looking forward to getting cuttlefish like a kid on December 23rd looking at the boxes, and it is a very,very refreshing feeling !
