The astounding giant has been display at London’s Natural History Museum. It is one of the biggest and most complete giant squids ever found. The animal measures a monstrous 8.62m (28ft). It was caught off the coast of the Falkland Islands by a trawler.
It was through a painstaking process, researchers at the museum preserved the giant creature, and it is now on show in a 9m- (30ft-) long glass tank. Giant squid was once thought to be sea serpents. It is seen very rarely and live at depths of 200-1,000m (650-3,300ft). They can weigh up to a 1,000kg. The largest ever spotted measured a vast 18.5m and was found in 1880 off Island Bay in New Zealand.
