Happy Cephalopod Week! One of the most famous dioramas in the American Museum of Natural History depicts a battle between two gigantic animals: the sperm whale and giant squid. But unlike most dioramas in the Museum’s halls, this scene has never been witnessed. Paleontologists Neil Landman and John Flynn explain how we know that this encounter does happen–and whether we humans will ever catch it in real time.

Cephalopod Week is the annual celebration of all things tentacled. Learn more at sciencefriday.com/cephalopodweek and cephalopodweek.tumblr.com
