"Rare Colossal Squid Found Near Antarctica"

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A rare and dangerous squid with eyes the size
of dinner plates and scores of razor-sharp hooks to snag its prey has
been caught by fishermen off Antarctica, New Zealand scientists said
on Thursday.

The half-grown female colossal squid is only the second intact
example of the monster cephalopod known to have been found, said
marine biologist Steve O'Shea of New Zealand's national museum.
