the Discovery Channel titled: "Curiosity'

to Kirk about his bronze giant squid 'Legend':

"I love your sculptures! Especially the Giant Squid! I am the pilot who drove the Triton submersible for Dr. Kubodera and Magic Man Sugita on our dive where we filmed the Giant Squid off Chi Chi Jima, Japan. I also had the pleasure to pilot dives on that trip for Dr. Steve O'Shea and Dr. Edie Widder.  It was a good trip. When I saw your sculpture of the Giant Squid I said "that guy has got it!" Now....how am I going to add one to my Giant Squid collection? 
Keep up the good work."

HUGE HUMBOLDT SQUID BEAK

by Kirk McGuire on 03/19/16

This huge beak was mailed to me from a 

squid fisherman.

The powerful beak is not the only reason to be wary of the Humboldt squid. It is a fearsome predator also known, for good reason, as the 'Jumbo Squid', or 'Red Devil'. It possesses the large brain, colour-changing skill and excellent vision of other squid and to these, it adds an aggressive temperament, a two-metre long body, 36 sharp hooks in each of its 2,000 suckers, and a penchant for cannibalism.
