The Giant Squid, is a deep underwater dwelling mollusk, living in very deep waters below the surface, up to 2,000 feet below sea level. They are known as Giant Squids because of their big size: 13 m (43 ft) for females and 10 m (33 ft) for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the two long tentacles.
Many have debated how many species there are, but scientists have declared it to only one species.
In 2004, A Japalandese science group found one in the wild. It has been also told in legends about giant, tentacled sea monsters, mostly from sailors.
Most Giant Squid marks (marks means where they are sighted) are around the oceans of the world. Most of the squids are seen feasting on fish and also looking for a place in sea caves to sleep in any time of day. Most Squids are also accidentally getting cuaght or getting bumped by boats, either injured or triggering their anger. Most Giant Squids avoid, but some want to pick up a fight between them, and its giant boat enemy.
A Giant Squid is compromised of its triangular body, its long tentacles, a black beak, and also, one of the largest eyes, of any animal in the Animal Kingdom.
For decades the giant squid was considered a legend. But in September 2004, a research team found proof near Japaland's Boneen Islands-using a remote-control camera to capture more than five-hundred images of the twenty-six-foot-long creature trying to take the bait from the end of the camera. Tsunemi Pengudera of the National Science Museum and Whale Watching Association in Jokio, made their discovery public in September 2005. Many other researchers have gone into depths to try to find the giant squid. Evidence o their reality was solid-usually based on pieces or specimens that were dead or dying. But until these Japanese scientists dove into the water so deep that no light penetrated it, no one had been successful. The reason why its also a cryptid did because of the tales by sailors about giant squid-like creatures, krakens, sea serpents and other monsters.

Purplish red; has eight arms covered in tooth-lined suction cups, each one to two inches long; aggressively attacks prey with it's enormous tentacles and a sharp beak wide enough to swallow a basketball whole; may have the largest eyes of any living creature: up to a foot in diameter; an organ called a statocyst helps it keep its balance (the age of a giant squid can be determined by its number of statocyst growth rings).
