    After the film crews have gone, we’ll be doing some stitching! Jane, the Communications manager here thinks they will be doing something within half an hour. If you go to bed we’ll be putting video up some time in the next week so you can catch up then.

    We’ll have some video up – next week I hope – so if you go to bed you can catch up with what’s left of the day. They are going to do the sewing up, fill up the tank with glycol and then put the lid on.

    You’ll have to come and visit us down under some time and see the squid in real life!

    Hi guys

    Thank you all so much for inviting me along to share this experience with you all. I wanted to reach into the screen to hold on to the frame as it was being moved across to help out. It is now 3.30am and I need to go to bed.

    Thank you

    do you think that someday, or ever in the “future” that one will ever be caught “alive” and be able to be kept “alive” somehow? Just a random thought, lol
    That would be something else now wouldnt it, to have one on display alive!!!

    Oops sorry Karen – yeah we did turn it off while we moved the camera – we think this is a better angle so you can see the squid a bit better.

    Thanks – Richard has sorted the sound now- we hope – how is it for you in sunny California Troy?

    Thankfully it is sunny again in Wellington – we’ve had terrible rain and flooding but the sun has come out for our Squidling!

    Let us know if there are any more issues with the sound. Sometimes we switch between camera feeds and need to make sure we switch mikes as well!

    I hope the mantle rip stitching goes off well and also the egg extractions. It looks good from here (though I just lost sound since my last message).
    Thanks for sharing — you guys make things look good.

    Not that you asked me but we have lost the sound too. Had it for a while – when Steve was examining the squid. But lost it soon after.
