Swimming with a (dead) giant squid


While filming whales off of the Canary Islands recently, a documentary crew discovered a rare marine find – the body of an Architheuthis (giant squid) bobbing in open water. They reckon that it was an adult female about 8 metres long with intact tentacles, where the largest specimens can be about 18 to 20 metres in total length, with eyes like a handball. Nice.
