Ink extracted from 150 million years old squid fossil

This just blows my mind: Palaeontologists have found a Jurassic-era squid fossil that is so well preserved they were able to extract ink from it.

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.

A picture of the creature and its Latin name was drawn using its ink.
