An Open Letter To This Squid And This Octopus
by Amy Lindorff
Dear Onychoteuthis banksii squid and Japetella heathi octopus,
Animals like you guys are why science in general and biology specifically is so awesome. I wish my nervous system could control what color I am and that I could shoot light from my stomach. That is kick ass.
P.S. Maybe I will be a “visual ecologist” when I grow up. What do you think? Want to be friends?
