Hope everyone has been enjoying the festive season. The krill has been plentiful lately, so I’ve been enjoying a great feastive season.

Here’s a video of one of my more interesting brethren, the “elbowed” Magnapinna squid. Thanks to Moe for sending the link.

Vegetables. They must be flung.

Veggie Fling

Sometimes a giant squid grows tired of krill and seaweed, and feels the urge to wrap his tentacles around something a little more earthy. Like dirt. Or things that grow in the dirt. Like vegetables. And then fling them.

Colossal Squid at Te Papa

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

You may be interested in the recent mutilation, er I mean autopsy of a colossal squid that occurred at New Zealand’s National Museum, Te Papa. Rest assured that this poor fellow was no direct relation of mine and that I am still very much at large.

Poor squid being dissected

While I was somewhat horrified to witness the dissection of one of my brethren, I can only hope that it has helped raise general squid-consciousness and awareness. If they wanted to know about more squid, they merely needed to have asked me.
