13-foot Giant Squid eaten by Blue Shark caught in action by the Daily Telegraph fishing columnist Al McGlashan and his team off the coast of New South Wales, Australia, according to reports of several international news sites on Wednesday, June 6, 2012.
Reports says, McGlashan was sailing off the coast of New South Wales, Australia, while filming the new series of his television series “Strikeforce,” when they found a 13-foot Giant Squid drifting nowhere on the water surface.
“It must have died not that long before we found it because it didn’t smell at all and its colours were still strong – most giant squid remains are smelly and rotten and just off-white by the time someone finds them,” McGlashan reportedly said.”
Meanwhile, when McGlashan’s and his team filming the 13-foot Giant Squid, the Blue Shark appeared and simply take chunks out for dinner.
Dr. Mandy Reid Squid expert from Australian museum told the Telegraph the squid may have been killed by a sperm whale, or died of natural causes. “Most squid only live for a year, they grow extremely quickly, but there is also a chance that it has been attacked by a sperm whale,” Reid said.
