A great photo!

Here it is – what I call the money shot – this was taken before they started the preservation process.

Here’s a link to an explanation of the preservation process.

It is all quiet in the examination room – as the preservation process continues – it will take up to a month for the formalin to do its work.

    Thanks Sharon – our heads have all hit the keyboard after a truely HUGE week here.

    I reckon we will need to webcast the opening of the exhibition – people have even asked if we will video moving the squid to its new tank! Cross fingers – we are working on it already!

    Thanks again to all of you for a wonderful job. I was one of the people glued to the computer for the entire webcast(well, almost, when my face hit the keyboard I gave up for a while) and am so happy with everything you did to make this the great learning experience it was for people all over the world. Just wish I lived closer so I could be there for the great unveiling when squiddy goes into her permanent home.
