Giant Squid

The Giant squid, considered to be the largest living invertebrate, is a cephalopod that finds its habitat in temperate to subtropical marine waters. Due to it being a deep-ocean dweller, the giant squid can grow to an enormous size. It is characterized by having a head, a mantle with two large fins attached, eight arms, and two tentacles. Suckers can be found on the tentacles and are used to catch prey while its large eyes are thought to aid it in discerning the shapes of nearby predators. In pop culture, the giant squid is depicted as a menacing sea monster.

Giant Squids have a broad overall length between 33’-59’ (10-18 m) and a width of 3’-5’6” (.91-1.68 m). An average Giant Squid weighs between 440-2,000 lb (200-907 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 2-5 years.

Cephalopods, or inkfish, are the most intelligent, largest, and mobile of all molluscs. Cephalopods are characterized by their body symmetry, prominent head, and set of at least eight arms or tentacles. Cephalopods earned the nickname inkfish because of their common ability to be able to squirt ink.
