Well Read Herring

20 Aug

Faust, that counts as being well read right?
You know nautilus’s right? Those ammonitey looking things? Apparently they have 94 tentacles. We were doing cephalopods in marine paleontology today, and our lecturer was talking about the extant ones and mentioned that nautilus’s have 94 tentacles. That just seems like a ridiculous amount of tentacles, more than you could ever need. Its more than order of magnitude greater than the amount octopuses have. Blows my mind.
I think I might start referring to them as 94opuses now.
