Rare Giant Squid Caught

A giant squid measuring 8.62m is on display at London's Natural History Museum after being caught by a trawler off the coast of Falkland Islands. Such huge squids are very rare and are found at ocean "depths of 200-1000m". Largest squid ever seen measured 18.5m and was found in 1880. They can weigh as much as 1000kg.
