WORLD'S LARGEST SQUID
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's largest squid?
Many of the world’s largest sea creatures are found by
fishermen who just happen to be casting nets or rods into the water at the time
the animal’s swimming by. And the case of the world’s largest squid is no
different. The world’s largest squid was caught by fishermen off the coast of
Antarctica in February 2007. When caught, the giant squid measured 26 feet long.
The fishermen, and the authorities in New Zealand,
thought that the squid was not to be wasted in any way and so, they froze it so
that it could be placed inside the New Zealand museum. It remains there today
and because of the way squid’s are, it could continue growing, maybe even
getting up to 46 feet long! But the squid’s gigantic size is not the only thing
that got it inducted into the museum – this species of squid is extremely rare
and so, that rarity is something too to be displayed!
