The rare strong squid was washed on the Oregon tree last month, giving scientists a unique opportunity to study the mysterious creature in the deep sea.
The 8-foot squid, which was 10 feet long and about 90 pounds, had already died when it was discovered by the beach hunters near Silver Point, just south of the beach of Cannon, according to Seaside Aquarium.
