Kind of self-explanatory, huh? Just try name a bizarre species of cephalopod! Either try to name the first one, or try to think of a weirder one... If you think of a good one, just give clues to it and try to get others to guess it!

Here's the first odd cephalopod:

*clears throat*
1. Lives veeeeeeery deep
2. Isn't as terrifying as its name suggests
3. Is no squid or octopus at all
4. There is no fourth clue. Muahahahaha!

Vampyroteuthis? Whoah, you're good....

I'm guessing Moroteuthis. But that's quite a stumper.

Now...

1. Think Daddy Longlegs
2. Think really weird....
3. Think NEW....
4. Think BIG!

Dosidicus,

It must be the "Mystery Squid," which I have not seen conclusively ID'ed or named, but has been linked to the Chiroteuthid line (which you can see more of if you click here.)

To see another big, thus-far-unknown squid, hie thee over to the "Physiology and Biology" forum and check out the photographs of "Mystery Squid 2."

Here's one for you:

What squid's name sounds like a mobile-telephone manufacturer?
