Archie the Giant Squid


The giant squid is a majestic & terrifying creature: up to 45 feet long, second-largest eyes on the planet, sharp hooks on its tentacles, known to cannibalize (!!@#!)...So when a 28 foot squid gets sucked up intact by some trawler off the Faukland Islands it's tragic (in a King Kong/Godzilla kinda way) but it's also a rare & awesome spectacle. So check out this Giant Squid in a freaky formalin-filled tank designed by Damien Hirst's animal preservation crew. The tentacled one has been attracting massive crowds in London since they put him out on display.
