I think we should start a dedicated Dr Kubodera tribute thread! :notworth:

I think we should too, because this is not the first, nor will it be the last we hear from or about him!

This is actually based on footage several years ago ... and he's out there still; imagine what other 'little' surprises he has up his sleeves!

In fact, we should immortalise him with a Dr Kubodera emoticon! (Neil has one!)

Agreed! Maybe we should also make him an honorary supporter or something. He sure gives us enough to talk about. Maybe we could even convince him to join!

Yes, Sorseress! Dr. Kubodera's work has provided us with thrilling matrerial and answered prayers over the last four years. Any chance he could do some kind of online Q&A here, someday?

Steve, if Ku got these T. danae images whilst doing a serious survey of the teuthid fauna near Ogasawara, I'm betting he's got big surprises in store. It's almost like a drumbeat. And, I'd kill to see it all in IMAX 3-D.:shock:

Cheers,
Clem
