  • The giant squid, Architeuthis dux, evaded being photographed alive for the whole of the 20th century. Finally in January 2002 one was caught by chance off Japan and photographed; since then there have been half a dozen giant squid caught alive and photographed.Here is a slideshow of all known living Architeuthis photographs. If anyone is aware of any other images, please drop me a line.If anyone enjoyed this, please have a look at my 'Colossal Squid Gallery' for images of the giant squid's bigger cousin. I've also added a short video on belemnites which were extinct cousins of squid and only known from fossils.For more information on these, and other cephalopods, please visit www.tonmo.com.
