These fascinatingly grotesque creatures can reach 7 feet in length and weigh in excess of 100 pounds, are known cannibals and can tear off a fisherman's hand with its razor-sharp beak, dousing its prey with prodigious amounts of black ink.I can't tell what's making me cringe more: the grammatical disaster that are this sentence, or the scientific absurdity of claiming a squid beak could tear off a fisherman's hand. Let's all say it together now: Humboldt Squid Do Not Eat Humans!
And, ink is a defense mechanism, not a hunting strategy.
And, who are you calling grotesque? This is beautiful!
