What is the largest squid on record?

    There are a couple reports that claim to be of the largest squid ever found. According to one report, the largest giant squid ever reported was found in 1878. The body was 20 feet long from beak to tail, with 35-foot long tentacles and suckers four inches in diameter. However, a larger squid was reported to be captured in New Zealand in 2007. Fishermen attempting to capture it estimated it to be 33 feet in length, but by the time it was hauled on board a boat, frozen, and then thawed at a museum, the specimen had shrunk to only 14 feet long.
