On this week's episode of Animal Instinct, Celia is joined by Michael Vecchione. Michael went to sea as a cabin boy on a three-masted schooner at the age of 16. He has been working on the biology, evolution, and life history of cephalopods (squids, octopods, and their relatives) since 1976. As a NOAA employee at National Museum of Natural History, Vecchione is Curator of Cephalopods and a Curator of the Sant Ocean Hall. He has participated in 40 offshore research expeditions, 13 of them as Chief Scientist, studying deep-sea biology.
