The other day, I was examined the contents of the digestive tract of Giant isopod who died.
in individuals captured after the date has not passed, it does not eat food in the aquarium.
Stomach contents, you believed that you were eating in the food or the seabed in the trap at the time of capture.
Previously, there was a thing that was introduce another individual of the contents, inside also this individual digestive tract had been filled with undigested material.
Color is black, different impression until now.
Weight of stomach contents is 128.5g, because body weight was about 1000g, you pretty now that it was at once ate a large amount of food for the body weight.
In texture you whether referred to as a “massive”, “soggy” This time, such as the internal organs of something if from the color feel of the … squid?
Smell is stronger, but because it was unexpectedly pond likely feel it when I smell, I tried to make sure the taste is a little lick.
Not surprisingly unpleasant, here also certainly (such as, for example, Ayu visceral salted “Uruka”) taste like salted fish visceral.
Even I feel taste.
When you leave for a while and left at room temperature (22 ℃), so went more and more soluble in muddy, I felt that you are self-digestion. Do Will contains a large amount of enzyme.
After that, I was a survey of solid was strained with a net, but this time in as long as it was confirmed by eye scales of fish are not included at all, there was still many just squid beak.
Most but is small enough width 7mm, even things like pieces of a large squid beak is in.
This individual seems to have apparently eat squid.

According to the source of that image, this happy guy was discovered after someone cut down a cherry tree, and one of the commenters believed it to be the larva of some type of long-horned beetle. Beetles come in all shapes and sizes, and the Xixuthrus Heros is one of the largest.
The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest celebrates its 25th anniversary today [21 June 2013] at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in Petaluma, California. Twenty-five plus “beauty challenged dogs are foregoing their usual beauty regimens in preparation.”
[Images and description found at the Ugliest Dog Contest Contenders. Note that all of them are members of the breed the missus refers to as “Kikmi Dogs.”]
A demonstration of the mathematical principles of the original Forth Bridge in Scotland performed at Imperial College in 1887. The central ‘weight’ is Kaichi Watanabe, one of the first Japanese engineers to study in the UK, while Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker provide the supports.
Long-span structural engineering illustrated. Note that weight is not the problem with this truss, but uplift is, hence the weights at the extreme ends of the truss. Tension is transferred from the exterior weights through the arms of the two men near the ends of the span, while compression struts keep this structure from collapsing under the dead weight of Mr. Watanabe. Note also that without the weight provided by Mr. Watanabe, this structure collapses (unless Messrs. Fowler and Baker scooch over and hold hands).
