After the images and videos were posted on social media, viewers insisted that it was an incredibly rare Architeuthis.

The Architeuthis squid is the largest ever to be recorded by scientists at 13 metres long and weighing about one ton.


It is estimated that the squid live up to five years so they grow to be very large quickly.

During that time they will reproduce only once.
