Just as there are animals out there with adorable mini versions of themselves, there are also gigantic species that boggle the mind.

Some are innocuous, some are dangerous. All of them represent the upper limits of animal size.

Colossal Squid

In 2007 a fishing boat off of Antarctica was fishing for Patagonian toothfish and came up with the colossal squid instead. It has eyes the size of dinner plates, sharp hooks on some of its suckers, and weighs almost a half ton.

No worries; it lives too deep undersea to bother us up here on the surface.
