  • A video slideshow of the best images of the most recent captures of the Antarctic cranch squid Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni, a.k.a. the 'Colossal Squid'. No-one truly knows how large this grows, the largest male caught measured 10m in length, but it's thought the females grow even larger...If you like this, please have a look at my 'Living Giant Squid Gallery'. I've also added a short video on belemnites which were extinct cousins of squid and only known from fossils.For more information on this amazing animal, and other cephalopods, please visit www.tonmo.com.
