The Mysterious Colossal Squid
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Caption: This colossal squid was caught by New Zealand fishermen in 2007. Original copyright for this image belongs to the New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries. It is believed that the use of this image qualfies as fair use under U.S. copyright law. No other free image is available to show the size, shape, and natural color of this animal.
