Argonauta Papyracea Swimming

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The principal apparatus of progression of the animal is the funnel with which it is furnished, in common with all Cephalopods, and which is very long in the argonaut. Aided by this apparatus, it ejects water after it has served the purpose of respiration, and in doing so, projects itself through the water.”
