hello from deep in squidland… today we have some very big (colossal even), exciting stuff going on.  in just a few hours we’re examining a new colossal squid specimen at the museum of new zealand te papa tongrarewa, and you can watch it live here!  it will also be archived after the fact.  enjoy the show from a safe, smell- and splash-free distance :)
