BIG time!

Heard of the giant squid legend? Take a look at these unbelievable pictures! It is real! The giant squid is a true monster! It's main predator is the sperm whale. They can grow up to 13 meters long! If they can, they usually battle with sperm whales to survive. They usually stay in the deep sea, so they rarely come to the surface. But watch out! Sharks and well, giant squids can come to you if you hear that Jaws music playing! And watch out for money-eating clams!

Another species

This fish is another species of anglerfish, Borophryne apogon. It looks funny, not scary! If you look closely, you can see a small male anglerfish attached to the larger female.
