The big squid has arrived at Portobello, where it will be under wraps until it is repaired, reassembled and hung! It arrived via our research vessel (Munida) and was then taken by trolly from the jetty to the pond space under the lab building, where it will eventually live!

Aaaaaah Didn't notice it....was way too excited!!! :roll: that may have happened during the last feeding session (as BGD suggests!) there were a few chewed boots lying around on the boat....................!

You'll be happy to know that she has had a bath and all the nasty boot prints are gone. Just waiting for the repairs now!
