New squid on the (ice) block

The 250-kilogram creature, caught by commercial fishermen off New Zealand's South Island earlier this year, has cost the aquarium more than $100,000, which included purchasing and transporting the squid.

It'd be cool if it were in Sydney Aquarium. Then I'd have a chance to actually see it :P

Well I can just be there in about 25 minutes although as it is Christmas day down here it will be closed.

The Melbourne aquarium is a quite nice although its just about to be doubled in size as a very ugly overpass right near it has just been removed allowing for it to be extended. Although that wont be finished until late 2007 I believe.

That's disappointing. I was hoping that they were talking about having caught a live one, but then, after reading the article a little bit more, it's dead after all, preserved on a block of ice. Better than nothing I guess.
