That is impressive. i would be wowed by such a beast as well. though i'm still more impressed by the living squid pictures...not saying dead giant squid aren't cool, just saying theyre not as cool.

though i'm still more impressed by the living squid pictures... Where did you ever see pictures of living Giant Squids? Last I had checked, Giant Squids had never once been seen (and proven [pictures, video etc.]) alive in their natural environment? Maybe I am wrong, however, If I am please do provide pictures; I would love to see some of a living Giant Squid!

Maybe I am wrong, however, If I am please do provide pictures; I would love to see some of a living Giant Squid! A team of Japanese researchers took some video footage a few months ago, yu can probably find it easily with google. I may go to see this, it's only about 20min from where I live; but whenever they have things like this on display it takes a few hours to queue up and you only get a few minutes.

I would love to see this, i'm always wowed by the complete specimens and although this lady isn't a particularly massive one, i'm sure she'll bring quite alot of attention. Unfortunately it wont last very long.
