Here we find our Shakespearean friend contemplating the fact that cuttlefish are the only cephalopods with an internal skeleton- and that is only one bone. A triumph for science and the arts!

Yes indeed! Pity it wouldn't have been as interesting if he were holding a cuttlebone.

Bringing a whole new meaning to "Alas poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio..."

Come to think of it:
- if it's a regular adult human skull, that is one LARGE cuttlefish. (With rather unsettling implications regarding the acquisition of the skull.)
- if it's not a regular adult human skull, that is still a comparatively large cuttlefish. (With an even more unsettling implications regarding the acquisition of the skull.)

I just broke out laughing when I saw this!
Too cute!
It's a good thing though that he isn't holding a squid skull!
I like how the ruffly fins on his back work with the ruffled Elizabethan collar!
