Deep Oceans - Another arrival comes to town

By: Jen Cork, Category: At The Museum, Date: 22 Mar 2012

Yet another piece of the deep oceans puzzle is coming together at the Australian Museum.

This week we have a special preview of Archi, our Giant Squid. Archi will live with the rest of our Deep Oceans highlights Mr Anglerfish, The Sunfish and the Globe. These work together to demonstrate the diverse and eclectic world that exists way down in the deep.

Deep Oceans Fun Fact: It wasn’t until 2004 that anyone managed to photograph a live adult Giant Squid in the wild. What a long time to wait to capture such an impressive animal!

Watch the video of our prep team unpacking Archi and piecing him together in preparation for the exhibition.
