Giant squid

The giant squid is a large invertebrate and also one of the most mysterious creatures in existence. There is much that is unclear about these creatures, and the finer points of their ecology remain unknown. Specimens over 18 m in length and weighing over 1 t have been observed. They live in ocean waters at depths of over 500 m. The first sighting of a living specimen of this species was in 2012.
