I’ve been flying and in 44kbps dial up land, so I’ve been behind on the blog reading (and likely will remain so for another week) and thus I have to thank Kasha for sending me the news that a giant squid has been caught alive! I am of course both super excited because it means more Discovery specials and sad cause, well, why do they have to go and spear em, and in the video clip I saw it doesn’t look like they kept it alive very long after they caught it… Which is why I won’t be changing my career to any kind of science where I have to harm the animal in order to study it. But yay for Discovery specials! See the current (very short) video here. Read more at Deep Sea News.
Also, I think I need this little cutie. There’s a meet and greet a week from Sunday and if she hasn’t been snagged up by then I’m going to say hi.
