Amazing pictures of the beak! I can't believe how identical it looks like to modern squid beaks, given how long ago the thing lived! Something to be said for evolutionary conservation. Very cool!

Cheers!

Some very nice pictures of the beak of Yezoteuthis are now online here. Click 'next' for some interesting diagrams of ammonoid jaws compared to recent cephalopods.
