Kondakovia longimana (Giant Warty Squid)

Wikipedia Abstract

Kondakovia longimana, also known as the giant warty squid or longarm octopus squid, is a large species of hooked squid. It attains a mantle length of at least 85 cm and probably over 1.15 m. The largest complete specimen of this species, measuring 2.3 m in total length, was found in Antarctica in 2000. Sleeper sharks and porbeagles are among sharks known to prey upon K. longimana, accounting for 21% and 19% of the cephalopod biomass consumed by each shark, respectively.
