    • Jon Ablett, Curator at the Natural History Museum, talks about the museum's giant squid specimen.

      This squid was accidentally caught by some fishermen, and is so rare that they gave it to the Natural History Museum so the curators could keep it and study it.

      Jon explains how the team managed to preserve the 8 meter long squid in liquid, and make it available for the public to see.
