Cephalopod Awareness Days: Cause for Celebration

October 7, 2013

Research & Collections

Greetings Blogophiles! Once again it is almost time to wave your tentacles in the air like you just don’t care and give a many-armed salute to our cephalopod friends. You guessed it…International Cephalopod Awareness Days is coming soon! October 8th through the 12th, a celebration of octopuses, squid, cuttlefish, nautiloids, and all the other wonderful mollusks that have their feet (technically arms) near their heads. Already giant squid (Architeuthis dux) are washing themselves ashore in anticipation. What? You were not aware of this celebration? Don’t feel bad, it’s not like this is an actual holiday with time off, festive decorations or obligatory gift giving. As far as I’m aware, there are no activities planned at the Museum for this auspicious occasion. That doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. Here are a few guidelines … not that I have any intention of following them, but you could.
