Squid Invasion

Thousands of jumbo flying squid—aggressive 5-foot-long sea monsters with razor-sharp beaks and toothy tentacles—have invaded the shallow waters off San Diego, spooking scuba divers and washing up dead on tourist-packed beaches.

“It was an amazing privilege to touch a creature like that and see how amazingly beautiful it was,” she said. “They have these wonderful eyes. … They look all-seeing, all-knowing.”

I do find this fascinating, but the comment about the all seeing, all knowing eyes does bother me.  Animals do not have that capacity and it is dangerous to promote that kind of thinking.
