Giant squid - level 1
This happens in New Zealand. A captain catches a squid. This squid is giant. It is brought to a museum. People study it there.
The squid is a female. It weighs 771 pounds (350 kg). Its eyes are 13 inches (33 cm) across. Its arms are over one metre long.
This is the captain’s second big squid. He caught the first one seven years ago. That one was even bigger. It weighed 1102 pounds (500 kg).
Difficult words: female (girl), caught (past of ‘catch’), was (past of ‘be’).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
