Explore the eerie world of giant squid, a creature never yet seen alive!

Plunge into the darkest depths of the ocean and discover some of the strangest, most mysterious creatures on earth: giant squid. These amazing animals have eyes as large as volleyballs, can be as long as a city bus, and may weigh up to a ton. Without living specimens, scientists have only been able to study the dead bodies of giant squid that have washed ashore or been found by fishermen and compare them with the Architeuthis dux's nearly 500 smaller relatives. These mysterious behemoths are just as strange as more commonly seen squid, only their oddities are giant-sized. With beaks, suckers, three hearts, eight arms, and rubbery bodies made almost entirely of muscle, squid are among the most fascinating inhabitants of the ocean's deep. With rare and remarkable photographs and crystalline prose, Sandra Markle illuminates the world of these incredible creatures.
