Giant Squid by EldarZakirov Giant Squid by EldarZakirov

The giant squid (genus Architeuthis) is a deep-ocean dwelling squid in the family Architeuthidae. Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size due to deep-sea gigantism: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 m (43 ft) for females and 10 m (33 ft) for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles
(second only to the colossal squid at an estimated 14 m (46 ft),
one of the largest living organisms).

The number of different giant squid species has been debated, but recent genetic research suggests that only one species exists.

AWESOME! one tip: look up squid eyes. They don't have eyelids, and a verry distinct pupill.

Thank you). That's not eyelid, just a fold. Although, as I see now, it looks like eyelid indeed. ;)
