In which we get excited about squid

As you’ve already read elsewhere, the first photos of a live Giant Squid have been released to the world. Unfortunately – even though according to the BBC story, the squid-hunting team took over 550 photos – only a handful have been published; between them the two stories linked here repeat all of the photos in the original research paper. Presumably, the full range of photos goes something like this:

  1. Photos of murky blue sea with no squid in sight (107 shots)
  2. Look! Squid! (4 shots)
  3. Ooh, we’ve captured a tentacle! (2 shots)
  4. The crew cooks calamari (143 shots)
  5. Blurry pictures of drunk sailors (314 shots)
