colossal squidCaught this little blurb on my newsfeed from IFLScience and was immediately hyped! The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Auckland University of Technology got their hands on a completely intact colossal squid (one of two to ever be recovered that way) and are going to be cutting up the cephalopod streaming live! Enjoy such activities as sexing the squid, examining it’s stomach contents (spoiler alert: I bet it’s seafood), and all sorts of genetic tissue analysis. After the project, the arctic specimen will be put on display at the museum along with its 2008 counterpart. Streaming begins at 7pm EDT, so get some popcorn popping and check it out here! I know I won’t be missing this.
