I was listening to the radio yesterday and learned that the giant squid has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom. First of all, I though the giant squid was a mythological creature, or maybe a wrestling move; not just rarely seen, like the unicorn. Turns out I was wrong. Real animal. And the eyes! The eyes are as big as basketballs! Wild. I’m not entirely sure why, but this makes me feel a little uneasy.
There’s also something called the colossal squid. Seriously? The colossal squid?
But that’s not the worst of it. Here are the horror movie facts I discovered in my extensive web research:
Unlike the giant squid, whose arms and tentacles only have suckers lined with small teeth, the colossal squid’s limbs are also equipped with sharp hooks: some swivelling, others three-pointed.
What the hell!? SOME swiveling? The next time someone talks about going “back to nature,” I’d like you to remind them of the these oversized underwater killings machines.
Also, all polar bears are left handed. I didn’t even know they were literate.
