Squid six meters long and weighing 46.7 kilograms could not survive the pressure drop and died while they tried to pull with a 500 meter depth.

Detect such a monster in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico - a great success. Last shellfish such size sailed here in 1954. However, then he was found already dead. This time, scientists who study whales unexpectedly came across a giant, was more fortunate. Squid was still alive. However, it has not brought them great dividends, as they attempt to remove the creature from the depths of the sea and study it a fiasco. While the research vessel pulled him to the surface trawl, with the rapid and dramatic change in pressure clam died, wrote, "Pravda.Ru".

Now, an animal carcass in canned form sent to the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum, where it will examine in more detail.
