In Japan, a giant squid comes to a bay. People are excited to see the squid. Divers swim in the water and they film him.

The giant squid is young. He is only 3.7 metres long. An adult giant squid can be 18 metres long.

Difficult words: squid (an ocean animal), be excited (to be very interested in something), diver (a person who swims in deep water).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
