    the Sperm whale one is fair enough though, since 5 out of 6 specimens recovered have been tentacles in the whales stomachs - first in 1925 off Aukland...

    Seriously, I remember seeing the picture of a rather giant squid in Guinness Book:-

    1. Largest Squid
    The largest intact specimen of a colossal squid ever found was that of an immature female (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) that was caught by fishermen in March 2003 in the Ross Sea, Antarctic. It had a total length of 5 m (16 ft), a mantle length of 2.5 m (8.2 ft), and weighed 150 kg (330 lb).
    As reported by Dr. Steve O'Shea of New Zealand's National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, the colossal squid has eyes as big as dinner plates and razor sharp hooks on its tentacles. It swims to a depth of 2,000 m (6,561 ft) and is an aggressive killer, eating large prey such as the Patagonian toothfish, which can grow to more than 1.8 m (6 ft) long

    2. Largest Creature Never Observed In Own Habitat
    The Architeuthis dux is often known as the Giant Squid. Because scientists do not know exactly where in the sea it lives, they have never been able to study it. Specimens have measured up to 18 m (59 ft) in length and 900 kg (1,980 lb) in weight.

    I've just spent a good hour in the bathroom, battling it out in an all-out no-rules war between myself and four flies. A combination of gas (tetramethrin) and History GCSE books were used. Eventually they all perished, but I now have a headache after spending an hour in a small, concealed room full of fly-spray.
