New Delhi: In what can be termed as a rare sight, three brothers in Wellington, who were out on their morning dive found a giant monster squid lying on the beach. And certainly, it wasn't a regular one!
According to Daily Mail, the huge squid was 4.2 m long. The report states that three brothers Daniel, Jack and Matthew Aplin were out on their regular morning dive routine when they came across the giant beached Cephalopod, near south coast in Wellington.
The brothers even got their hands on a tape to measure the size of the monster Cephalopod. The report states that the brothers contacted National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, who eventually took the squid.
OCEAN HUNTER Spearfishing & Freediving Specialists from New Zealand on their official Facebook page posted the picture of the brother posing with the monster squid.
