Yeah it was in the New Scientist but the issue was actually published in April. The giant squid has a body (or mantle) 2.5 metres long and is still a juvenile. The aricle said, had it been an adult its mantle would have been at least 4 metres long!

Apparently giant squid don;t taste too good - although the squid rings would be th size of tractor tyres, so it's a shame about the taste.
