Squids have a fascinating physiology that sets them apart from other marine species. Explore a squid’s internal and external morphology (the study of an animal’s form) by performing a dissection.
Use scientific instruments such as probes, scissors, tweezers and microscopes to explore its body. Along the way, identify the adaptations that have allowed these unique predators to thrive in our oceans for millions of years.
