Wow, that is a cool giant squid it's a little sad that all the fisherman are killing them.
Wow, that's a big squid. I wonder why they travel in such large groups. Wouldn't that mean it would be harder for each squid to find enough food (considering there are so many in one place)?
I never thought there could be a squid that big! It is very interesting that they travel in such large groups. I wonder how that affects them biological lifestyle such as feeding.
Do you think they are congregating to feed on their food source, or maybe to breed, or both? I wonder what natural predator may be taking advantage of their aggregations. I don't think there will be much off the Coast of California that would eat these except sharks or toothed whales (dolphins or killer whales).
