Common Name: Giant SquidScientific Name: Architeuthis dux

Fun Facts:*It is one of the largest known invertebrates in the world.*The Kraken myth was probably based on this creature.*It may be one of the smartest creatures in the sea.

The giant squid uses the suction cups on its tentacles to grab and hold onto fish or other squid while eating it with its beak. Its only real enemy is the sperm whale which finds the squid to be a tasty meal!

The giant squid is about 10 times larger than the average 6-foot man!

I can be found world-wide in seas of up to 10,000 feet deep!
