Reply Jean McKinnon May 1st, 2008 will it be downloadable? I have to teach a marine ecology class later and don’t want to miss this!

So no – I will not taste the mixture for you 🙂 Reply Michelle, Cedric, Abbey & Cole May 1st, 2008 We are in Wellington and have been glued to the computer over the last few days. I think it is great the amount of people from around the world who have been able to share in this exciting and interesting event. Thanks again Reply June Griffiths April 30th, 2008 This is just so fascinating…. have done absolutely nothing all morning except checking up on your progress. Thank you. June Northern Ireland Reply Chris April 30th, 2008 Once more thanks again from chris in the USA it was very cool to see and I look forward to the Discovery show later this year. Reply chrispaulin April 30th, 2008 It can be used as sheepdip – know any farmers who want 10,000 litres of slightly used formalin in about a month’s time? Reply Wendy April 30th, 2008 what happens to the formaldehyde brew afterwards.Can it be reused? Reply Nicole April 30th, 2008 Earlier on they said the colossial squid is a boy and the giant one is a girl Reply Jeffrey April 30th, 2008 From what I remember hearing earlier they do not know what sex the squid is. It seems to have been getting murkier, probably from the squid itself. Not sure if there is too much they can do about it. Reply kent atkinson April 30th, 2008 What gender is the squid please, and if it is a male, what does the morphology suggest about its repoductive technique? thanks Reply artandmylife April 30th, 2008 Have been noticing the water getting murkier – is this bits’o’squid or what?
