Squid!







Another totally cool class at the Farralones Marine Reserve Visitor's Center, this one about squid (previous ones we attended were on salmon and sharks). We watched a video and then dissected both a small (market squid) and large (medium sized humbolt squid). Who knew that they have beaks? Oh, the dissection started out neat and turned gory as the stomach emptied... but it was fascinating, too. The kids ended with making squid prints... hopefully not as smelly as the salmon prints, but probably so!)
