See what the insides of a rare giant squid look like

Examining a giant squid up close isn’t something scientists get to do often.

That is why the enthusiasm of New Zealand researchers who will be able to analyze a specimen caught last year in Antarctic waters.

The animal was frozen until this week, when experts from the University of Auckland placed it in a pool so it could be handled and studied.

Not much is known about this mysterious species, so any information that sheds light on life in the depths of the enormous mollusks is welcome.
