NZ and the UK are practically opposite sides to each other on the Earths surface, yet we share some of the same fish. Fascinating.


Actually NZ and the North Atlantic share quite a few deep-sea species; orange roughy for one.

Here she be. Defrosting in the car park... still mostly frozen, but the, ah, aroma has already attracted a few flies. And onlookers.

We're frantically trying to get someone to make a cast of it ... and it's beginning to smell somewhat .... Ifw e don't get a cast made this afternoon, or first thing morrow, we'll have to carve it up and just do the skeleton, and that would be such a tremendous waste.

The company that had it stored for us was desperate to get it out - they needed the space (understandably); otherwise we'd have had more time to organise this

DHyslop,

Was that a suggestion for the new unit of measurement for Mola to be a spaceshuttle? Their not quite as easy to draw as double-decker buses...:wink:

Wow, absolutely fabulous creature! They are so unusual looking. I really hope Oceanus is looking out for you and the most can be made of this opportunity. Good luck!

Cheers!

Although I realize the beast is on its side, the resemblence was too much to pass up. The X-38 crew rescue vehicle would have been about twice the length of the fish, for reference.
