Most giant squid washed ashore
Last updated: October 12, 2017 at 3:22 am
Up to 65 specimens of giant squid have been found on the shores of Newfoundland, Canada; one-fifth of all the giant squid ever found in the world. Several more have been caught or observed alive by fishermen and sailors, and there are verified records of giant squid attacking people in small boats close to shore. No diver has ever reported seeing a live giant squid underwater.
