Indeed, watch this space in days to come; it is time to resurrect this popular old thread.

We'll process ~ 25 whale stomachs this coming week. It will take some planning and a few months, but eventually we will come up with a TONMO exclusive - our very own key to identifying cephalopods, both squid and octopus, using beak morphology - an online article to assist people with identifications based on partial remains.

We've been at a whale stranding all day - 13 male sperm whales off West Coast, Auckland, NZ; will be there again tomorrow to process the stomachs of 11 of them. Have heaps of pics of colossal and giant squid battle scars on their heads ....

.... and we smell terrible!

Till morrow
