Summary

Does a gigantic, boat-sinking cephalopod really exist? Popularized in the 1870 Jules Verne novel Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, the Architeuthis, the gigantic squid, was thrust back into the spotlight following the highly publicized filming of live giant squid in 2004 and 2006. Kraken: Fact or Fiction? shows what cryptozoologists have uncovered about the giant squid and its relatives, the colossal squid and the colossal octopus. Find out if Architeuthis is the biggest cephalopod out there, or if an even bigger denizen of the deep lurks in the ocean.
