It weighs 495 kilograms (1,090 pounds), has eyes the size of dinner plates and is estimated at up to 10 metres (33 feet) long.
But that may be relatively small, scientists say after initial examination, suggesting other colossal squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) under the chilly Antarctic waters might grow much larger.
So, a 50 foot squid has suckers approximately 4 inches in diameter, at the base of it's tentacles. This is a creature with an eyeball that has a diameter of one foot.
They have found Sperm Whale carcasses with sucker scars of 16 inches in diameter,
implying a squid that is 200 feet long with an eyeball 4 feet in diameter.
Great Jumpin' Mohammed! Kill it with Fire!!!
