a Colossal Squid is in the news

I'm not sure why, but I've ALWAYS been intrigued by the Giant squid. Today, a Colossal squid was caught by a fishing crew. I didn't even know Colossal squid existed! They're up to 46 ft long & are found in Antarctic waters. They're not related to Giant squid that grow up to 39 ft long & are found around the coast of New Zealand. Can you imagine swimming & seeing one of these?!? If calamari rings were made from this squid they'd be the size of tractor tires. This species has the largest eyes of any living thing ... they're the size of dinner plates. CRAZY!
