Giant squid - level 2
A sea captain caught a giant squid in December. It was brought to a museum in New Zealand and the people there froze it. Recently, they defrosted and examined it.
The squid is a female and it weighs 771 pounds (350 kg). Its eyes are 13 inches (33 cm) across, and its arms are over one metre long.
The captain caught his first giant squid seven years ago. It was even bigger than the second one. It weighed 1102 pounds (500 kg). It is in the same museum, but we don’t know if it will be on public display.
Difficult words: defrost (to make something not frozen anymore), examine (study).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
