Giant squid has world’s largest eyes

squid largest eyesSo with the picture of the giant squid in my earlier post, here’s an article about a giant squid that has the world’s largest eyes. They found the carcass of a rare colossal squid that had eyes that measured about 11 inches across (bigger than a dinner plate) – and making it the largest animal eye on EARTH!

“This is the only intact eye (of a colossal squid) that’s ever been found. It’s spectacular,” said Auckland University of Technology squid specialist Kat Bolstad, one of a team of international scientists brought in to examine the creature.
