Elendil's article about some fossils reminded me of all the strange things in the sea and a story I saw on the news on TV about the discovery of giant squid.

A 25 ft squid has been caught on camera and remains of squid in sperm whale stomachs hint at giant squid that could be up to 100 ft. long.

Check out this link: Link to get to the squid blog.

Check out this link to see the reuter's footage of the 25 ft squid Link it takes a long

A 25 ft squid!!!! Can you imagine the calamari? How about the cookware needed to prepare it?

A couple of years ago, I saw this really bad movie about a giant squid. It starred...Treat Williams? I looked up his filmography but couldn't find it. I saw it on TV in Japan and it had a different title... Now I'll never find it.

Anyway, this giant squid is killed, dragged to a marine park and is put into a pool. The scent of the dead squid carcass washes out to the ocean and attracts an even bigger squid. This squid attacks a one man sub and with it's super powerful squid beak, pops that sucker open like a can of soup and munches the person inside.

I didn't watch the whole movie, because it was obviously silly, but that part was kind of interesting in a "I never thought that could happen" kinda way.
