Giant Squids
By Vickie Chao
  

1     A long time ago, sailors believed that there was a scary monster living deep in the sea. In the dead of the night, it would come out from hiding. As it rose to the surface, it would stretch its arms to snatch any objects within its reach. It could even take down the world's largest ship!
 
2     For centuries, stories about this scary monster caught everybody's attention. It fascinated listeners everywhere! According to the eyewitnesses, this scary monster was about the size of an island. It had a huge pair of eyes. And it had many arms. Each of its arms was covered with hundreds or even thousands of suckers. Based on those descriptions, the giant squid seems to be the only animal that fits the bill.
 
3     But is the giant squid really the scary monster?
