Ham Sandwich

I didn't realize the Zoo had a tank full of nautiloids. I thought these critters were deep water and required a specialized environment, but apparently I was wrong.

The tank was not lit, and I felt a little bad about using a flashgun, but they didn't react at all to the bright light. After reading up on them, it appears their vision is poor, lacking a lens within their eyes, so the light didn't bother them.

Don't ask me why, but when I was a kid, I always thought it looked like the nautiloid was eating a ham sandwich, but that's just their tentacles.
And just for those in the know: "Ph'nglui Mglw' nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn."
