GIANT SQUID! Ok, so not really "giant," so much as "colossal." Some long-line fishermen hooked the hefty cephalopod in the Ross Sea near Antarctica. Just how big is this thing? Dr. Steve O'Shea, the squid-hunter made famous by this awesome New Yorker profile from 2004, said if calamari were made from the squid, the rings would be the size of tractor tires.


So cool. Pharyngula's got more photos.
