Sources say that this absolute sea beast was caught in fishermen nets that they were trawling at a depth of nearly 500 meters.

When the squid is completely stretched, you get a sense of the scale of this massive beast and it is both frightening and striking in equal measure.

The creature has currently been frozen and sent to specialists at The Study and Protection of Marine Species in Northern Spain for more research.

These giants can grow to as big as 43 feet, so this is not even the biggest example you may encounter in the deep blue sea.
