Squid pros go

February 25, 2007


This was reported everywhere, but I had to blog it because I am a lifelong sucker for giant squid.

This beauty, Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni, not actually a giant but a (larger) colossal squid, was snagged by kiwi fishermen in polar waters. I’d gladly have spent a year in indentured servitude for the chance to be on that ship for the two-hour struggle.

More pics available here and here.
