Sea Monster


They've found a COLOSSAL SQUID (misonychoteuthis hamiltoni ). It is significantly larger than a GIANT SQUID. It is longer than a Sperm Whale (40 feet).The mantle or long pointy part on the top of its head is 15 feet long! It is mean and aggressive, and has SWIVELING HOOKS on its suction cups! The scientists examining it said this,

"Now we can say that it attains a size larger than the giant squid. Giant squid is no longer the largest squid that's out there. We've got something that's even larger, and not just larger but an order of magnitude meaner."


They'd only previously found pieces of this huge predator inside the bellies of Sperm Whales. The scientists are saying the Colossal Squid could take on Patagonia Toothfish (very large and big teeth), and even Sperm Whales. How terrifying! ( this is a closeup of the swiveling hooks )

Well, it's a London Bus, and London Buses are descended from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and so....there you go!
