Anatomist Gunther von Hagens, who developed the Body Worlds exhibition of preserved human bodies, has plastinated a pair giant squid.

Previously, von Hagens has plastinated giraffes, elephants and humans, but a giant squid – with fragile skin, no skeleton for structural support and more body water to replace than any other attempt – posed some challenges for the controversial anatomist.
