I can't find the original thread right now, about the photos here:

Maybe somebody has already dont this, but I had a friend of mine translate the Japanese above the pics:
Daiou ika (ika=squid/ cattle fish): well-known deep-sea monster squid.
It's famous for its fight against sperm whale. This grown-up squid's body trunk is 2m long. The whole length including the "legs" (don't know how you call it) is estimated to be about 6m. The picture below is considered to be bigger than that; trunk length is 2m long, and 8m as a whole.
