Here are some close-up, more detailed shots of the Mesonychoteuthis than you'll find in the syndicated stories. Unfortunately I can only post three at a time...

These are overviews of the whole animal, and the beak.

As you know I work part time at our aquarium and this school holiday (starting 12 April) is called "Aliens of the Sea" We're featuring the weird and wonderful from the ocean and we'd love to print off the photos Kat just posted and use them in displays.................would that be OK???

Cheers

Wow

Just wanted to chime in and say thank you for posting the pictures.

Don't let Peter Benchley see them, though... the last thing we need is a The Beast 2.
