Friday Squid Blogging: Jurassic Squid
Palaeontologists have drawn with ink extracted from a preserved fossilised squid uncovered during a dig in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.
The fossil, thought to be 150 million years old, was found when a rock was cracked open, revealing the one-inch-long black ink sac.
The calcified ink was ground with a solution of ammonia to turn it into ink.
