Giant Squid Being Devoured by Shark Filmed in Australia Coast (VIDEO)
There’s nothing more intriguing than odd animal sightings.
Fishing columnist for The Telegraph Al McGlashan discovered a dead giant squid in the south coast of Australia as it was being devoured by a shark. The amazing part is that the squid was so freshly dead it still had its “ruby coloring.”
“It must have died not that long before we found it because it didn’t smell at all and its colours were still strong — most giant squid remains are smelly and rotten and just off-white by the time someone finds them,” said McGlashan.
The squid is 3 meters long (in non-metric terms: a little less than 10 feet).
However, 3 meters isn’t the longest a giant squid could grow up to – they can grow as long as 13 meters. Although the giant squid lives for only about a year, experts are surmising that it was killed by its only predator, the sperm whale as it is much swifter in the waters.
The giant squid continues to be one of the most mysterious animals in the ocean.
