A giant squid, all 23 feet of him, was caught Sunday about 12 miles off the Florida coast near Port Salemo.

With its two long tentacles and eight arms, the squid barely fit into the fishing boat that brought it ashore.

The squid is being studied at the Florida Fish and Wildlife commission in St. Petersburg.
