This shark fought off a deep-sea squid

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

In the shadowy depths of the Pacific Ocean off Hawaii, a shark battled what may have been a giant squid—and lived to tell scientists about it.

The tentacles of the massive cephalopod left golf ball-size suction marks on the skin of the shark, a seven-foot oceanic whitetip.

This is the first scientific evidence ever found of a shark interacting with a giant squid or any other similarly large species of squid, which live at depths of more than a thousand feet, researchers say in a new study.

The epic tussles between deep-diving sperm whales and giant squid are famous, but until now, no one had proof of a shark encountering a huge cephalopod.

If they come near me they will be steamed, pickled in rice vinegar, chilled and tossed on a spinach salad. :yes:

You'll need a cement mixer to toss up that salad...

I have a butcher block table, 3 pattern welded swords, 2 kukri and a large collection of axes.

I'll have a full chest freezer is what I'll have. ^_^
