Monterey Bay AquariumÂ® Sea Life Giant Squid
“Here there be Monsters,” ancient maps used to say. Were early seafarers referring to the elusive Giant Squid and its slithery tentacles? The scale model Monterey Bay Aquarium® collection was designed in collaboration with scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. The Aquarium’s mission is to encourage awareness and conservation of the oceans and their abundant life, a commitment shared by Safari Ltd®. Along with being professionally sculpted, each replica is individually hand painted, creating realism that can usually only be found by seeing these remarkable creatures up close. The scale of this set ranges from 1:20 to 1:50. Safari Ltd® has a worldwide license agreement to develop and sell this exclusive collection.Scale: 1:40Measures: 18” L x 3” W (45.5 x 7.5 cm)Recommended Ages: 3+All of our products are lead free and thoroughly safety tested
NAME: Giant Squid (Architeuthis dux)
LENGTH: Unknown. Largest animal on record is 60 ft (18 m)
WEIGHT: Unknown. Largest animal on record is 2000 lbs (970 kg)
HABITAT: Unknown. Most world oceans at depths of 600-3000 ft (180-1,1010 m)
These “monsters” baffle scientists.Books and movies portray giant squid as menacing monsters of the deep, but we actually know very little about how these fascinating creatures live. We do know what eats them: their beaks show up in the stomachs of beached sperm whales (whose skin is often scarred by battles with the squid). The giant squid still remain a deep-sea mystery, never yet seen alive in their natural habitat.
