There are many kinds of tumors; not all tumors are cancerous. Lots of mammals get varieties of tumors. Do cold blooded animals? Do fish? Invertebrates? In any case, this specimen didn't die of cancer or benignant tumors.

Very curious.

True........tis brain fade.......put it down to the start of student enrollment and the accompanying chaos!

Teleost Fish do get tumours, both benign and malignant, melanomas are especially common I believe. Cartilaginous (Chondrichthys) fish (sharks etc) are not known to get them.

hello again,

So I have been diligently dissecting squid for my project and the more I dissect, the more I realize that the purple structure I was confused about must be the caeca (Jean and Steve were right). That'll teach me to second guess the experts :notworth:

Thanks again for the help.:biggrin2:
