Wierd animals and you!

Postby Super Grendel » Thu Dec 01, 2005 10:18 pm

Perhaps one of the most strangest animals I have heard of is the Giant Squid. It was believed to be little more than a figment of sailor stories until dead squids began washing up on the beach reaching a wopping 50-70 ft.!
My concern is, no one seems to have filmed a living one, but people have deffinetly seen them before (where would the stories have come from) which means they have surfaced before, scince no one has seen a living one in so long they were considered a myth (until now). I guess what I am asking is, why would these dwellers of the deep rise to the surface of the ocean, and why did they stop?
