    The Giant Squid, or Architeuthis dux, is the largest invertebrate.  It can grow up to 59 feet long (as far as we know) and weigh up to 1 ton.  Scientists believe they live at depths of 660 feet-2,8300 feet.

    The Colossal Squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) is the largest squid by mass, in fact so big as to be the largest invertebrate. Its size is estimated to be able to reach 12-14 m (39-46 ft) in length, with the longest one caught measuring 10 m (33 ft). The weight of that specimen reached almost half a ton (over 1000 lbs). It also has the largest eye of any animal! However, even that specimen’s beak was smaller than those found in some whale stomachs, so the colossal squid can grow even larger.
