Giant Squid Washes Up On New Zealand Beach

Daniel Aplin, the diver said:

After we went for a dive we went back to [the squid] and got a tape measure out, and it measured 4.2 meters [13 feet] long.

A representative from the New Zealand Department of Conservation told the Herald that the divers most likely found a giant squid (Architeuthis dux) and not a colossal squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni).
