    550 Pound Squid found in Tasmania

    This just amazes me and freaks me out at the same time, this thing is huge. Wonder if it would make nice Calamari rings? :D
    ********************************************

    HOBART, Australia, July 11 Australian scientists on Wednesday were examining the carcass of a 550-pound squid that washed up on the west coast of Tasmania.

    "The main mantle of the squid is about 3 feet across and its length is about 25 feet," said the Tasmanian Museum's senior curator of invertebrate zoology, Genefor Walker-Smith.

    "It's a very exciting discovery and we will be carrying out a number of tissue tests and take pictures and measurements on the animal today."

    A beachcomber made the discovery Tuesday night and contacted the museum, the Melbourne Herald-Sun reported.

    Museum curator David Pemberton said the Archotheuthis cephalopod was in very good condition and possibly had been dead for less than a day.

    He said the entire specimen might be preserved to gather information on its biology and for display at the museum.

    A lobster as big as a bus would scare the bejeesus out of me. He would be pretty hard to bring down I bet.

    Who knows? A gun? That armor would be pretty hard Im thinking. Ive always boiled mine to kill them, that guy aint boiling in no pot, but could you imagine the scream? We could stop a lot of murders if we used the boiling pot on humans as capital punishment. Great Deterrent, boiling in a pot.
