Nature Is Just Messing With Me Now

Check out the creepily human-looking teeth on this squid, a promachoteuthis sulcus. Just looking at it gives me the heebie jeebies. Does this look like something Stan Winston dreamed up, or what?

I feel sick when I see things like that. The other thing is when I see human eyes even in artwork that aren't where they should be, like looking out from a hand, I could just puke. Thanks for helping me recreate that feeling! You truly are full service!

I'm here to delight, enlighten, inform, and disgust. I am all things to all bloggers.

All I want to know is if it has a tongue.

Bella Rossa said...

Yes, YOURS, if you get too close.

Bella Rossa said...

My ::shudder:: pleasure.

I think looks quite cute. Probably a good kisser, too. Is it single?

Bella Rossa said...

Ew! It takes a science fiction author to say something like sick and hilarious like that. I don't know if it's single or not, Timothy, why don't you ask it out for a drink? A drink other than the one it lives in, that is.

I thought the pic was a modern painting where somebody through in a human mouth with an animal's body. Pictures like that help us realize that animals aren't all that different than us. That's why we should have compassion for them and that's why I don't eat them!

Truly, Atul, animals aren't that different from us, but I would still scream and freak out if I saw this horrible thing coming at me in the water. Give me cute and fuzzy if you want more compassion. :)
