I received an email from Sally Edmiston of the UnderWater World on the Sunshine Coast (Australia), regarding the frozen giant squid they have on display. She was interested in spreading the word to fellow ceph enthusiasts, and provided me with a photo of the exhibit! Here is the press release itself:
Monsters of the Deep features the world’s only Giant squid frozen in time plus other amazing creatures from the deep seas – that have never before seen the light of day. The exhibit features rare photographs and specimens from the deepest darkest depths of the ocean floor including the Starry Seabat, Spotted Stargazer, Deepwater Spiny Crab or Champagne Crab, Giant Deep Sea Isopod, Deepwater Spider Crabs and more! The image gallery will showcase photographs from one of the largest and most recent collections of deep sea photography in the world. It is an Australian first. This, plus the Giant squid makes it an exhibit not to be missed for any squid or deep sea enthusiasts! For more information visit www.underwaterworld.com.au.
The 7 metre squid is frozen in time in the world’s largest man made block of ice and will be on display at UnderWater World together with other amazing and rare sea creatures from the deep including the giant deep sea isopod, the deepwater spider crab, the spotted stargazer and more. The Monsters of the Deep exhibit also features a rare photographic display of other unique creatures found in the deep waters off New Zealand including the famous Warty Angler Fish of Finding Nemo fame. Visitors will be amazed as they also witness rare footage of a live Humboldt Squid filmed off the coast of Mexico.
The Monsters of the Deep Exhibit is included in the admission price for UnderWater World. [Adults $25.50, Children $15]. UnderWater World is located at The Wharf, Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia.
