Colossal Squid!

23 Feb

My brother’s fiancee alerted me to the capture of a newer gigantic-er colossal squid. Very exciting. The articles are touting calamari the size of tires, but if colossal squid are like the giants, you wouldn’t want any part of that ammonia filled mass.

    I came across this article yesterday and thought of you right away! It is HUGE! Is it still alive and going into a museum or what?

    I don’t think it’s still alive. And I’m pretty sure first it will undergo lots and lots of tests and studies,etc.

    Hi there! I absolutely hate giant squid and think they are the embodiment of hell on earth, but I cannot stop researching them; that’s how I came to your page. I was pleased to see that you are vegan and into science. I am also vegan and into science; I’m a biochemistry major researching alternatives to animal testing and am desperately seeking the camaraderie of fellow vegans in this field that hates us. Let’s be pen pals forever!

    Nice to meet you! That’s awesome that’s you’re researching alternatives to animal testing! Write anytime! Beware that I am overly fond of exclamation points…
