Florida fishermen snared a real-life sea monster over the weekend: a giant squid measuring 25 feet in length.

"It's really, really, really rare to get giant squids because they're so huge, and live so deep," John Slapcinsky, a collection manager at the Florida Museum of Natural History, told me. For museum workers and scientists who specialize in giant squids, this specimen is quite the catch.
