Colossal Squid

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

The largest invertibrate ever discovered is the colossal 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!
