Collosal Squid are huge and rarely seen sub-species of Squid. It is thought that they can grow upwards of 12 to 14 meters in length and large beaks belonging to Collosal Squid are found in the stomachs of deep diving Sperm whales. They are found usually in the Southern Ocean and around the waters of New Zealand.
The large squid are very rarely seen as they live in the deep ocean and only surface when near death. Recently a 10-meter Collosal Squid was caught by a New Zealand fishing trawler. It is on display at the New Zealand National Museum.
