The PleasureGround has attractions such as a cephalopodarium, a feeding pool, a funtime fair and miniature golf. More details at The Atlantic Magazine (Jan. 2, 2012).

  2. Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Ancient Ones.

  3. Dumbo octopuses
    …Dumbo octopuses (Grimpoteuthis) have ear-like fins that resemble the ears of Disney’s flying elephant Dumbo. These octopuses live at depths of 3,000 to 4,000 metres below sea level and hover just above the seafloor, hunting for food. Although little is known about them, researchers believe there are at least 18 different species of dumbos—the largest ever recorded was 1.8 metres in length and weighed 6 kilos.
