I could be wrong, but I thought squid preferred colder waters?

mm, didnt they find alot of giant squid already ? i heard that they have footage of one somewhere. & squid do live in colder deeper waters, but this one was probably injured and washed up on shore.

The first giant squid corpse ever handled was .. I believe in January of this year. Or it might have been sometime in 2007. These things are still a pretty unusual find. Far as I know only one has ever been photographed alive in the water.

I thought they preferred colder waters, too. Because they're so big and live so deep under the ocean? But that doesn't really look like a GIANT squid to me
