What kind of fish do giant squid eat?



  1. 0 Votes

    Very little is known about giant squids (Architeuthis dux) due to a lack of solid research. As far as behavior and diet goes mostly we only have guesses or educated estimates at this time. They use their large tentacles to bring their prey to their beak and shred their food with their radula (tongue-like muscle with sharp small teeth). One theory is that they eat small fish, prawns, other squid, or even hoki fish. In a recent study of a dead giant squids stomach they found pelagic fish and cephalopod, so we can assume both are at least part of the giant squid’s diet.
