When I was 45mm long, I got my first hook. I will never meet Nessie, I live in the ocean.

Though it is known from only a few specimens, current estimates put its maximum size at 12–14 metres (39–46 feet) long, based on analysis of smaller and immature specimens, making it the largest known invertebrate.

Many sperm whales carry scars on their backs believed to be caused by the hooks of Colossal Squid. :shock: :big_eyes:

In 1978, sharp, curved claws on the suction cups of squid tentacles cut up the rubber coating on the hull of the USS Stein. The size suggested the largest squid known at the time.

In 2003, a large specimen of an abundant, but poorly understood species, Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni (the Colossal Squid), was discovered. This species may grow to 14 metres (46 ft) in length, making it the largest invertebrate.

Easy one. Name five very strange things that have been found in a shark's stomach.
