    Very cool! One of the smallest and intact Archies it says. Can't wait to hear your guys' insights.

    Wow, yeah, those are some great pictures of a great specimen!

    Got any more pictures for us, Debi? I'd love to see some closeups of the skin, particularly, since I've pretty much never seen pics of Architeuthis with the skin intact like that. Oh, and closeups of the eyes would be great, too...

    I'm curious if it had identifiable prey in its gut, too, of course... heck, I'm pretty interested in general!

    Wow, that is so cool! The beak and tentacles are so small, it's adorable.

    Now THIS is what happens to any lab that hosts a TONMOCON, may it be an inspiration to the NIOZ here in Den Helder:smile:

    Great find! Overall appearance (fins!) really seems to indicate a proper ID, very, very exciting...
