Cephaglobinid family tree

October 17, 2012

Here is a more interesting one; a family of the cephaglobinids in A Door into Ocean. My students will do this one on Friday.

Cephaglobinids are the squids on steroids, such as the “rocket squids” that fly out of the water, and the seaswallowers that migrate from pole to pole, devouring entire floating rafts. Then there are the smaller fleshborers, like a cross between maggots and piranas.

There are actual squids that fly out of the ocean.

P. S. The answer for the tree is here.

    I felt far less threatened by the monster squid in the late “Jaws” author Peter Benchley’s “Beast” (1991)! If anyone asks me what I’m dressing up as this Halloween, I’ll tell’em, “I’m gonna be a Cephaglobinid”…

    It certainly is a red-blooded American choice for Halloween. Someone really should go as a Sharer with you, though.

    Anyway, I’m boycotting the solution on this one until your students see it. Actually, perhaps I should load up five separate solutions, one of which *might* be right?
