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.
