colossal slacker

My love of giant squid is not a secret.  What’s there not to love?  You can imagine my excitement a few years ago when that colossal squid was caught off Antarctica (poor squid).  Well, let me tell you – it just keeps getting better in the world of abyssal gigantism!  This article was brought to my attention last week (thanks to fellow squid lover Katie), and it really cracked me up.  The razor sharp hooks on the arms and tentacles of the colossal squid had been held as evidence that the squid is a fierce hunter, but now it turns out that he probably just hangs out, lump like, waiting for his dinner to swim past.  Ha!  That is so squid.  And speaking of those tentacle hooks – did you know that they could rotate 360 degrees??  Um… awesome.
