Colossal Squid

We just learned about the fish called a Blue Tang

Another interesting animal is the Colossal Squid

It is the largest invertibrate ever discovered in the world.

An invertibrate is an animal without a skeleton, like an Octopus or squid.

It was discovered in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica.
The colossal squid was around 40 feet long, that's about 7 times taller than a normal person, and as tall as a four story house!

We don't know much about the colossal squid, because we've only ever seen a few in real life!
