Hi Mark here,
just thought you might like to know how our squid feels after three months in the fixing solution.
To my touch the arms are now firm and don’t “give” in the way they did when we first defrosted her. The mantle however still has a covering of the jelly like substance that would of been under the maroon coloured skin. The tail or fin is now firm as well, so when Steve and I were turning her over here wasn’t the awful feeling that we had last time that the fin might disintegrate under our touch.
I still have this irrational feel that she might come to life at any moment!
