Collossal Squid Found

This Collossal Squid, which became entangled in fishing nets when it tried to feed off a catch, is in Top Ten Photos of 2007 From National Geographic News. The specimen weighs an estimated 990 pounds (450 kilograms), has eyes as wide as dinner plates and sharp hooks on some of its suckers. Other incredible photos on the list are of a tree frog encased in 25 million year old amber, a rare Goblin Shark (which died 3 days later in captivity) and a 100 year old Alaskan Rockfish (caught by commercial fishers).
