Rare Giant Squid Australia

Rare Giant Squid Australia, An Australian fishing writer is gaining worldwide attention after he spotted the remains of an elusive giant squid being chomped on by an 8-foot shark off Australia’s south shore.The squid carcass, which measured nearly 10 feet, was believed to have been killed shortly before the columnist, Al McGlashan, spotted it.
McGlashan, told Australia’s Telegraph newspaper that he believed the squid had died not long before they found it.
“Most giant squid remains are smelly and rotten and just off-white by the time someone finds them,” he said.
McGlashan told a Sydney radio station that finding a squid carcass intact is rare, but the squid’s orange coloration is even rarer.
He said he believed the squid was killed by its only predator: a sperm whale.
Don’t expect it to actually end up on the dining room table, however.
The squid, one expert told the paper, has an intense ammonia smell.
The video was uploaded onto YouTube on Monday and by Tuesday afternoon had nearly a million views. (ABC News)
