How Big is a Giant Squid in the Deep Sea? - Nature and Wildlife 7

The squid (credit to MentalFloss).

We may find squids in seafood market or Asian Market across America with 9 to 13 inches (0.23 to 0.33 meter) long size and about 1 pound averages.

These normal size squids are delicious dishes or calamari, eaten in many countries from Asia to Mediterranean countries.

How about with giant squid? I never heard people eat giant squids.

You might watch about a diver swim close to a giant squid, broadcast by a TV channel recently.

A Japanese swimmer took a video of 12 feet (4 m) giant squid in Japan’s water. It is the second time of a kind of squid appeared in Japan.

The squid is believed belong to genus Architeuthis with at least 8 different species. They are:
- Architeuthis dux
- Architeuthis hartingii
- Architeuthis japonica
- Architeuthis kirki
- Architeuthis martensi
- Architeuthis physeteris

- Architeuthis sancipauli
- Architeuthis stockii


Deep sea squid (credit to JSTOR Daily).

Of 8 species, three of them are important:
- Architeuthis dux, come from Atlantic ocean
- Architeuthis martensi, come from North Pasific
- Architeuthis martensi, come from Southern ocean.

The giant squids are living in the deep ocean. They can reach much longer size compared to what Japanese found few months ago.

As recorded, the largest squid is 43 feet (14 m) long and 1 ton weight size. A quite bigger animal, and one of largest animal on earth.

  3. YOU - find the most unique subjects to share . . . wow . . thank you.

    NO - I've never eaten squid. I have seen a few odd science fiction films with giant squid attacking divers, submarines, ocean going sailors in ancient ships . . . they were poor quality films - scary for little kids. Until this moment - i never really considered a squid . . . See? You educate us all the time.

    What a gift.

  9. You always have something new to teach us! When I was a kid, I thought I saw a real squid, but it turned out to be just a fake one on an undersea ride. Maybe some day!
