Raising Giant Squid in Captivity?

February 21, 2010

Steve O’Shea hopes to raise a giant squid in captivity. Thats a big feat considering they only managed to get a picture of one in the wild in 2002. Basically, that squidy’s going to die. I don’t need to tell him that, he’s a fucking marine biologist. Wikipedia talks about his work in preserving large cephalopods. This illustrates the difference between animals rights and conservationism- conservationists care about preserving a species, but obviously think that justifies this sort of distress to an individual animal (this link outlining the competition over how long researchers keep the squid alive). I just don’t like it.

Also, have a look at this beast. Sitting there still, it really looks like an alien ship just hovering. The music adds the the affect. Amazing.
