Looks more like a colossal squid to me https://en.wikipedia.../Colossal_squid

Thanks for the heads up. You're right, the animal looks more like a colossal squid, giant squid looks a little different:

I agree. The Giant has those two extremely long tentacles and longer arms all around. Also a slimmer, longer mantle.

It matters to me, the colossal squid is even more elusive than the giant squid, so this to me is more exciting than a giant squid :tu:

I agree with the consensus: Colossal Squid. Still, that's something you don't see every day! That'a a lot of calamari!

They should have shot it. Keep it as a specimen or trophy, then charge people money to view it! Shame letting it go like that..

Was the squid seen in the Ukraine?

If it was then it must have been volunteer fishermen that witnessed it.

Yes. One is giant, the other is colossal.

Some time ago, a biologist said that these animals have have too much ammonia, and that therefore it would not be a good idea to eat these creatures.

Oh bother, with that much ammonia it would be better suited to scrub a ships deck :(

I'm surprised they didn't try to annex it.

With the increase in body size comes an increase in brain size. If it is meant to be this big instead of being an overgrown garden variety squid then a bigger brain is probably part of its genetics. The biggest squid there is also happens to be the most elusive? I wonder just how smart they are.

The ocean is an eerie place. So many creatures and depths unexplored. Another world...

It should've attacked the vessel condemning the entire crew to a watery grave, just like in the olden days.

Stupidest thing i have read on these forums. Hopefully some aliens will shoot you and put you on display as a trophy.

What they should have done is given it the fish.

Now do the world a favour and Goplayonahighway
