Watch Scientists Dissect a Colossal Squid Right Now

Squid biologists from Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Auckland University of Technology are dissecting a colossal squid. It's happening live, right now, on YouTube. Watch!

The Museum explains on their YouTube page:

This colossal squid and the specimen already on display at Te Papa are the only two of their kind caught intact – ever! Large colossal squid specimens in good condition are rarely available to scientists, so this latest example has caused great excitement.


It only started about 10 minutes ago, as of this posting, so you haven't missed much yet!
