  • History:

    Because of their size and rarity, giant squids have been firmly entrenched in maritime folklore for ages. Depictions of creatures like the giant squid date back many years, with the kraken being the most famous. Despite being incorporated into legend as a fearsome monster, giant squids are incredibly rare and elusive, and live at such a deep depth that they’re almost never spotted by humans. Very little is known about giant squids or their global population, but experts believe they aren’t vulnerable or threatened simply due to how separate they are from human activities.

    The giant squid still remains a deep sea mystery, never yet seen alive in their natural habitat. However, we do know what eats them as their beaks show up in the stomachs of beached sperm whales.
