The Squirrel Queen loves a giant beast, especially a giant sea beast.
Even frozen giant sea beasts.
Scientists have been defrosting an enormous squid and have documented the process online.
Some of the still photos of squid body parts are pretty incredible. Beaks and eyes and hooks, oh my. The eye is actually the largest in the animal kingdom.
The Te Papa’s Blog has all the info from start to finish on this incredible project.
