Jaba the Hutt?

From a website correspondent:

Perhaps it's disrespectful to the power and resilience of such a fine hunter, but whenever I see a picture of the GHO in repose (such as the one above taken by Lincoln Karim), I can't help but think of Jaba the Hutt from the Star Wars movies! Not a very flattering name, but it gives me a chuckle every time.

P.S. from Marie: Faithful early-morning walker Jack Meyer reports that the GHO is still in the area of the Azalea Pond today. Since the local weather is warm and mild, I expect the fly-out audience will be large.
