The bloop that roared

A mysterious "bloop" sound recorded repeated on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array baffled marine biologists. Now, CNN reports that Brit scientists think it's evidence of a honkin'-big deep-sea squid.

Although dead giant squid have been washed up on beaches, and tell-tale sucker marks have been seen on whales, there has never been a confirmed sighting of one of the elusive cephalopods in the wild.

The largest dead squid on record measured about 60ft including the length of its tentacles, but no one knows how big the creatures might grow.
