From kompas.com Researchers accidentally discovered a giant squid as long as 5.9 meters caught in their nets off the coast of Louisiana, Gulf of Mexico. The findings of rare animals in these locations showed a lot of things we do not know about the giant squid.

Squid were netted newly weighed 46.7 kg. He was captured July 30 in a net trawl at a depth of 450 meters below the water that pulled the ship researchers. However, animals died because they cannot adjust to changes in pressure at different water depths when brought to the surface.

"When it comes out of water in our trawl nets, I saw there was something big in it, very big," said Anthony Martinez, water mammal researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The researchers are examining the actual types of sperm whale food intended to preserve the squid they found and sent to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum for further investigation.

Giant squid are rarely found in one piece. Researchers usually only see the remnants of her body in the predator stomach as animal sperm whales. These findings make it very valuable time for researchers to study the animals that are more complete.

Giant squid can reach lengths of 12 meters and is usually found in the deep ocean, as in the waters of Spain and New Zealand. Previously recorded only once, namely in 1954, a giant squid was found dead floating in the Mississippi Delta, is still at around the Gulf of Mexico.

food supplies for 10 months, to be eaten by one RT or Two must be pretty, more even. but, the squid eye like the eye od human, can you see it? or maybe the squid is a person who is condemned.
