I'm trying to think of the squid equivalent of "Follow your nose." Does it involve the radula?

Haha, probably! Cephalopods have some weird sensory organs in weird places... maybe they follow those.

Thank you! Nature's "clothing" can be so stunning... why not cross-dress species for fun? ;)

But I do love Toucans, they're delicious.

Gouache is like watercolor, but opaque, and usually applied thicker. It is my favorite.

And they sure are pretty. Just like chicken.
