The Giant squid, considered to be the largest living invertebrate, is a cephalopod that finds its habitat in temperate to subtropical marine waters. Due to it being a deep-ocean dweller, the giant squid can grow to an enormous size. It is characterized by having a head, a mantle with two large fins attached, eight arms, and two tentacles. Suckers can be found on the tentacles and are used to catch prey while its large eyes are thought to aid it in discerning the shapes of nearby predators. In pop culture, the giant squid is depicted as a menacing sea monster.
