Iapetus the walnut?

Images just released from NASA and the Cassini imaging team reveal that Saturn's moon Iapetus has a bulging waistline! The images reveal a 20km high ridge neatly bisecting the dark hemisphere of this intriguing moon... Does anyone else think Iapetus resembles a heavily cratered walnut?
