Cephalopod Week is back, with another eight days to cephalo-brate our many-armed friends!
Our special guests include Matthew A. Birk, biology professor at Saint Francis University studying the relationship between cephalopods and the oxygen in their environment, Nicole Gioia, senior biologist, fish and invertebrates at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium who helps care for octopuses and other undersea creatures, and Tim Pearce, curator of the mollusks collection at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, who will show us how gastropods and cephalopods might be more similar than we think (plus, if we ask nicely, he’ll tell us a few snail jokes!).
