What a squiddy lady...

the Beagle Project went to London today for a meeting but the highlight was getting a nose around the spirit room of Natural History Museum's Darwin Centre, and what should we find, laid in state but this 8 metre squid caught in South Atlantic last yearMore pickled specimens later, including those collected by Darwin's own hand and a coeleocanth! The real lady of the day was the wonderful, welcoming and knowledgeable curator Mandy Holloway, for giving us the time and the tour. Many thanks.

OK, here's some more...
