Hi, I'm new here and I think I must be a squid geek. This strange state of affairs has arisen because I work at Te Papa, Wellington, NZ - home of the colossal squid. I'm part of the team that helped develop the colossal squid exhibition, which opened to the public today. So I've spent the last 6 months learning lots about squid and becoming very close to Mesonychoteuthis.

You could say I'm hooked....

Ok, so what does NIWAitesstand for? The NI might mean North Island, but the rest ....I'm clueless.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome! If anyone is coming through to Wellington do let us know, and one of the squid fans here at Te Papa will be very happy to show you the colossal squid exhibition.:mesonych:

If you visit the website you can even Build your own Squid...hours of fun for the Christmas holiday season.
