  • A squid thaw, live!

    "Technicians in New Zealand have postponed until Monday the delicate process of defrosting a colossal squid caught in Antarctic waters last year. Having removed the creature from the freezer on Sunday, the team realised it would defrost too early for a planned examination by scientists on Wednesday.

    The half-tonne 10m-long squid is now back in the freezer, still wrapped in the fishing net in which it was caught. The eventual thawing and dissection will feature in a live webcast. The Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni specimen was caught in February 2007 in Antarctic waters."
