Imagine finding a giant squid while on route to a beach area that you visit regularly. On December 22, 2004, Derwin Roberts of Triton found a giant squid in Badger Bay measuring over 12 feet long. Giant squids are the world’s largest living invertebrates and are rarely seen.
Why not stop into the Triton Sperm Whale Pavilion to see more on the Giant Squid and its interaction with the Great Sperm Whale.
