Mysterious Giant Squid Discovered on Spanish Beach: Is it Architeuthis Dux?

Is this the carcass of the mysterious and fabled giant skid Architeuthis Dux carcass? Who knows! But one thing is clear: beachgoers stumbled upon a huge, almost intact, and scary squid body on a beach of Cantabria, Spain on october 1, 2013.

According to newspapers, this ocean monster was about 30 feet and weighed nearly 400 pounds. It is now stored at the Maritime Museum of Cantabria.

This video is in spanish and show you the incredible size of the sea monster

This discovery is just amazing, considering that giant squid, although they’re the largest invertebrates on earth, are extremely elusive and, thus, difficult to studybecause they reside at depths of between 1,000 and 3,000 feet.

Look at this video of another giant squid caught by an oil rig camera. 

In the times of ancient mariners, Architeuthis Dux and other creatures such as the giant oarfish have inspired tales of sea monsters, such as the legendary Kraken, and various book authors such as Jules Verne in “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” Herman Melville in  “Moby Dick,” Ian Fleming in “Dr. No,” and Peter Benchley in “Beast” (later adapted as a film, “The Beast”).

I would like to know if these squids also produce giant pinkish blobs.
