ivy league squid!

my friend marycat gave me this eons ago. behold, the yale squid:


he lives in the Peabody Museum's lobby, and he is watching you!


According to a postcard and info MC gave me, the squid is 37 feet long, and is a life-size representation of the giant squid Architeuthis dux. The model was made in the 1960's. How sweet would it be to have that hanging in your living room? Beats a weird ikea lamp any day.
