The Albian Rocket Squid is an animal COB created by Steve Dismukes of Fig's Tree. This COB injects an Albian Rocket Squid into the sea between the Desert Island and the Watchtower. It will swim happily back and forth 50 times before soaring into the sky, never to be seen again. Alternatively, poking it (left-click with the mouse) will cause it to launch immediately.
About the Rocket Squid
The Albian Rocket Squid spends most of its life in the deepest parts of Albia's oceans. However, for reasons unknown to Albian science, they sometimes appear near the surface. The difference in pressure causes gas within their bodies to expand, building up pressure gradually until with a deafening WHOOOOSH the unfortunate mollusc is violently launched into the sky. This is a possible explanation for occasional rains of calamari in Albia. More often it is believed that the squid vanish into space, perhaps to colonise new worlds.
