Colossal squid! It's big.

I haven't written about giant squid in a while, so here's a link to a newly caught colossal squid, which is apparently like a giant squid, just heavier. (via Boing Boing)

I read about this the other day. Cool stuff. If I remember correctly, I think they have never managed to catch a live one and keep it alive.

I saw this documentary about a scientist who was trying to catch baby collosal squid so he could try and raise it and keep it alive.

Cool stuff.

Thanks Anthony. And yeah, they say this is the first time they've captured a colossal squid at all, which makes it pretty exciting. As for the guying trying to catch baby squid, he was looking for giant squid. He actually has been able to capture tiny baby squid, but raising them in captivity is apparently really difficult.

Thanks for the comment.
