The preserved body of an enormous squid in a long transparent tank. Two people standing to one side give some sense of the scale. A collection of specimens, mostly fish and one tortoise, with labels from Darwin’s voyage on the Beagle. Rows and rows of transparent containers filled with creatures preserved in liquid in an underground industrial room.

I met Archie the giant squid, Darwin’s tortoise, and many, many other fine specimens thanks to the lovely folks at the Natural History Museum! 🦑 🐢

I love that a photo I took 21 years ago is still available at its original URL on the Mirror Project: https://www.mirrorproject.com/mirror/?id=3997

(That’s not a thumbnail; that’s the photo—pixels were expensive back in the day.)
