Best news I've heard all day, perhaps: a collassal squid has been captured. "Colossal", I think, is one notch smaller than "giant" (which doesn't make much sense to me, as far as word power goes... but, hey, I'm not the one who makes such decisions). The article doesn't say if it's alive or dead; looks like it's on ice in the picture. "Fully grown, the colossal squid would be 'larger than any giant squid I have seen, and I’ve seen 105 of them,'" says scientist Steve O'Shea.
