Which one? Does the aquarum buy in fish food? Perhaps you can prevail upon them to buy some whole squid. We do (we also use it in our education prgrammes for school and public dissections! www.otago.ac.nz/marinestudies). The squid make really good food for many of the critters (a bit messy when you're feeding out though ).Shadow Mantis;95345 said:Thanks for the feedback. I actually work at an aquarium and would use the beak as a "learning experience" for visitors. I would prefer to have a beak mailed from somewhere in the US. If not, I might check out a seafood restaurant.
Oh.....didn't look at where he was from I'd talk to the husbandry team and find out if they ever feed squid to the critters and get them to keep back beak or two.sorseress;95347 said:Baltimore Aquarium?
That's OK, I didn't look to see where you were from before asking!! The only reason I thought of asking your husbandry team is that in our aquarium we don't have separate teams for each aspect (we're much too small!!!!) so I have done my share of food prep and know that whole squid is a good food, and we use it a lot, along with other fish etc!!!Shadow Mantis;95376 said:Yes, I work at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It never crossed my mind to ask one of the aquarists for a beak (they do use squid frequently). This summer, I actually might be working behind the scenes doing enrichment and food preparation (including our GPO).
Thanks Again Everyone

I wanted to know if anyone here had any beaks from a dead octopus/squid. If you happen to have any, please let me know.
