does ballisitic jelly float? i know its made to act as human flesh does, but it might give a more realistic sonar signature than something hard... you could use the current model to make a mold and crank out a few disposable jelly squid to use around whales....Clem said:Much as I like the idea of using a Messie model to predict sonar returns of the genuine article, I'd guess that the model would have to have the same consistency to give an accurate result. A stiff plastic Messie would probably reflect a larger sonar return than the more absorbtive squid-flesh.
i would totally use it as a canoe then have it attack a small boat to test a few legends then i would clone it, keep the two in captivity and observe the mating habbits, YES IM JUST LIKE THATSteve O'Shea;15495 said:Resurrecting an old thread.
Here's the deal. Hypothetically speaking , if you had a life-sized model of Mesonychoteuthis , and someone was taking it out to sea (hypothetically speaking of course), and you could do anything you wanted with it (other than destroy it), what would you like to see it doO
