Papo Giant Squid Review:This Giant Squid is a nice figure by Papo! It's two long tentacles are poseable, adding to the overall appeal. A good level of detail was paid to the anatomy of this creature. At 9" long this is a larger size figure and is made of a softer, flexible material than most Papo models.
Giant Squid Information:Giant squid (Architeuthis dux) are deep-sea cephalopods and one of the largest invertebrate animals in the world. They are found in all the world's oceans, usually in deep water habitats, and can grow up to 43 feet (13 meters) long, although most individuals are much smaller.
Giant squid have a distinctive appearance, with large eyes up to 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter, a long and slender body, and eight arms and two long tentacles covered in suction cups lined with sharp hooks. They are also known for their ability to change color to blend in with their surroundings, a mechanism they use for both camouflage and communication.
Giant squid are elusive creatures and little is known about their behavior and biology. They are thought to be solitary creatures that feed on fish, shrimp, and other squid, using their tentacles to capture prey. They are also believed to be preyed upon by some large marine mammals, such as sperm whales. Despite their enormous size, giant squid are not known to pose any danger to humans.
