excerpt from the article -

Group sex

He says the reproductive habits of giant squids are particularly interesting and will be the focus of much study.

"We will look at whether it has been mated or not. Whether it is a male or female."

"Giants have very strange sexual behaviour where the male has a metre-long muscular penis that he uses a bit like a nail gun and shoots cords of sperm under the skin of the female's arms and she carries the sperm around with her until she is ready to lay her big jelly mass of a million eggs."

"We want to find out whether they gather somewhere together to mass-breed."

>"They've got this giant beak like a giant parrot with a tongue covered in teeth, and they have to puree the food so they don't get a splitting headache every time they swallow."

Holy $hit.

Ooookay....I sure as hell don't want a video documentary of that :rolleyes:
 
I think it's fascinating that, just ten years ago, these animals were pretty much on a par with the Loch Ness Monster as far as evidence they even existed, and nowadays we're discussing their sex lives. Science is neat.
