Sucker ring from a squid. Not sure what species. Here are some from a giant squid (Architeuthis dux).

I agree with jason r but not necessarily from a squid but a sucker ring just the same.

I agree. I think it's a close-up of some sort of tentacle.

tai haku said...

I think everyone else is right.

I'm going to say octopus just to be different!

Yeah...I think squid, too. Ick!

What they said. Or the eye of one of those fellows they found out in Roswell.

Agree with the tentacle crowd, it does not look friendly, whatever it is.

It's that thing at the bottom of the pit at Jabba the Hut's lair in Return of the Jedi.

How about an anemone tentacle just to be different.

Jen said...

Disturbing?

Cara said...

I'm going to be different and say "fish face", just because I don't think I'll ever get the chance to leave that in a comment again. :-)

on the off chance the majority missed the mark, my musing... marine mollusk mouth... mayhaps?

Looks like a squid eating a bottle cap. Whatever it is has me slightly un-nerved! LOL

oh,oh! That was where the oral surgeon grafted Jane Doe's jaw into my mouth and then it all fell out at Christmas dinner.

I don't suppose you want to analyze your cat hatred? The rattler video is certainly as good as Olympic beach volleyball-Gold Medal to you if not for the fireants.

On the heels of my Vicki!

I don't know what that is but it looks gross and mucous-y.

Melody said...

A Florida aria?

OldHorsetailSnake said...

1. Octopi or squid-nik.

2. Or, an abalone.

3. I give up.

Husband and I are scratching our heads in puzzlement. Please post the answer soon.

Y'all are waaaay too smart and funny!

Congratulations.
It's a macro shot of the sucker of a Loligo squid.
This is the most commonly caught genus of squid I believe. When you eat the whole calamari ... you eat these.
For me ... squid are extremely fascinating animals, but not on my menu.
They do make great bait for other marine denizens that are on my plate however.

Apologies: my Thursday morning schedule did not include blogging and I'm cheating right now, so it's back to work and I'll try to think of something to say by this evening.
As always, thanks for playing along!!!

Freste said...

Uh yeah, um, that's what I thought too. Did I win?

VitaminSea said...

Exactly what I was going to say! LOL

btw, Rico is strutting around, sulking at your "dogs rule" comment.
I'd watch my tracks if I were you. (g)
