A giant squid has washed up on a Tasmanian beach. The squid, measuring nearly 60 feet in length may be a new species, as it has some differences from the normal giant squid Architeuthis.
These animals are amazing in that even with our advanced technology, no one has ever seen in one in its natural habitat. Dead specimens are not too uncommon, and one can even be seen in the Natural History Museum at the Smithsonian, but scientists have yet to find a living one. It appeas as though the deep ocean still has quite a lot of fascinating discoveries waiting to be made.
