Colossal Squid

One of my favorite animals – the colossal squid

I would hate to get caught face-to-face with this vicious beast.

Fact Sheet:

Largest eyes of any animal in the world

Swiveling hooks on sucker discs at the end of the tentacles

Size is unknown (very few specimens have ever been caught, but an 1100 lb colossal was caught recently)

Inhabit the deep waters of the Antarctic

Rumored to have quite a temper
