That must be a giant squid! Skipper Rangi Pene said Monday that the 500-pound squid was already dead when it was caught in a trawler's nets Sunday night in waters more than 1,640 feet deep. Paul McCoy, a fisheries research biologist, said it took 10 men to lift the squid onto a stretcher and place it in a storage freezer in the city of Portland. A museum will collect it this week. That is a rare catch. What do you think? Read more:;_ylt=AiY8JKTDohv29shZRyV9u6btiBIF

I read about this and it makes me wonder at the different monsters that the ocean deep hides. There have been numerous stories and theories about a giant squid but this makes it one for the reality books and tv shows.
