Yes although it would be quite sporadic!

At least you have been posting a bit recently :hmm:

Perhaps a journal will make you a more frequent visitor again :biggrin2: and it will be our first squid from eggs journal I think.

I know I've been a bit absent. Blame it on having too much work! Unfortunately I seem to spend much of my time these days guiding students through lab sessions they don't want to be at and marking the assignments from those lab sessions ! So I get far less time skulking around the aquarium! BUT I have 3 days this week teaching at the aquarium so I should be able to sneak into the aquarium and take some pics, make notes etc!!!!! YAY!! Oh and I've laid claim to all the Bobs that died, so when I get a minute I'll be dissecting them and hopefully trying to age them.

OK So I was out at the Aquarium today, and checked on the Bobs, we have about 6 left and the eggs look much the same as last week

Recent Pic of the eggs, still very opaque white. And a pic of the last adult (a rare active shot!) which passed away last week

How interesting! Bobtails are really cute - my 9yr old daughter just loves them and is constantly asking me if we can get one. My answer is always, 'uh...NO, not possible sweetheart.' Hmmm, I'm not sure if I should show her these pics. :hmm:
