Whiti Colossal Squid of the Deep

Victoria Cleal , Isobel Joy Te Aho-White

$30.00

A wonderful 32-page illustrated book that dives into the mysterious world of the colossal squid. Through engaging text and glorious images, it tells the story of a colossal squid’s life, from hatching out of a tiny egg to escaping the jaws of a sperm whale and becoming the world’s biggest invertebrate. Side topics range from Te Papa’s colossal squid specimen to Maori exploration of the sub Antarctic. Readers will discover how the squid survives in the deep waters of Antarctica, and will meet other strange creatures that are uniquely adapted to this hostile environment. Like Te Papa’s new Nature | Te Taiao exhibition zone, this book weaves together scientific inquiry, matauranga Maori, and plenty of humour. It shows how all living things are connected—and how we too are part of the natural world.
