    well that all just sounds charming. way to go mother nature...

    i had been wondering what this was, thanks for posting it. I was hoping for new giant jellyfish or something interesting but not surprised it's more ordinary in nature... Just weird that they didn't ID it sooner...

    Man, I'd love to see a whale skeleton sinking in sea ;)

    Heh heh, it's blobby like a whale...

    Wonder what they are going to do with it now.

    i retract my previous statement where i said i intended to eat one of these. i thought it was a new colossal squid, and i really had a calamari craving.

    maybe this should be moved to the original thread rather than starting up another seperate thread.

    It's interesting that they didn't even have to run a dna testing, but if they figured it out by just the dermal glands why did it take such a long time?

    Yuck, now that's just nasty.....makes you wonder though, since they also found a whale carcass near by in the ocean at the same time.....
