The giant squid. The second largest species of squid known to man. The giant squid can reach lengths greater than 50 feet and has the largest eyeball in the animal kingdom. It is thought by many marine biologists to battle with and maybe even prey on sperm whales. Unlike most squid the architeuthis dux has serrated suckers on the clubs of it's two longest tentacles which are most likely used for catching and holding prey. The giant squid is one of the earliest and most terrifying examples of the fabled sea monsters that destroyed and sunk ships hundreds of years ago and is widely considered to be the same monster known as the kraken.
"The young couple's blood curdling screams could be heard from the pier as the hungry architeuthis dux destroyed their little yacht and pulled them toward it's gnashing beak!"
