Scientists at the University of Hawaii at Manoa will soon have a chance to investigate a creature that appears to be half squid, half octopus that was found in waters off the Big Island.

Workers call the latest find an "octosquid." It has the body of a squid and the tentacles of an octopus

totally awesome. My Uncle, rip, Dr. Gilbert Voss at Rosentheil at the U, was an authority on pylum mollusca and particularly loved cephalopods. My Aunt, still runs the museum for them. He would have liked this.
