Meet Architeuthis (arki-TOOTH-iss), otherwise known the elusive, mysterious, very rare giant squid. Until 1997, no one had ever observed a living, healthy giant squid. Dead squid?often more than fifty feet long?had been washing up on beaches or getting tangled in fishermen?s nets for decades, but it took a fully-funded expedition manned by experts and equipped with deep-sea cameras (attached to the backs of whales) to actually capture the first images of giant squid in action. As marine biologist Ellis recounts the details of the National Geographic-sponsored voyage, he tells us everything we ever wanted to know about the giant squid?and really, it?s all completely absorbing and utterly fascinating. From the facts of the squids? biology to the tenuous theories about its behavior, from myths and legends to historical tall-tales and classic literature, one thing about The Search for the Giant Squid rings true: Architeuthis is irresistible.
