    Giant sea creature baffles scientists

    SANTIAGO, Chile, July 2 — A huge, gelatinous sea creature found washed up on Chile’s coast has stumped scientists, who have sent samples to a specialist in France for help in identifying the mystery specimen. The dead creature was mistaken for a beached whale when first reported last week, but experts who went to see it said the 40-foot-long mass of decomposing lumpy gray flesh apparently was an invertebrate.
    “WE’D NEVER before seen such a strange specimen, we don’t know if it might be a giant octopus that is missing some of its parts or maybe it’s a new species,” said Elsa Cabrera, director of the Center for Cetacean Conservation in Santiago.
    The round leathery substance looks like a mammoth jelly fish and is about as long as a school bus.
    Giant octopus live at a depth of up to 9,500 feet and only rise to the surface when they die. Specimens have been known to be as long as 30 feet.
    There was speculation that the mass might be a whale skin, but Cabrera said it was too big and did not have the right texture or smell.

    The Chilean Navy first spotted the mystery specimen along with another large mass near Puerto Montt, in southern Chile, but the other dead animal turned out to be a humpback whale.
    Cabrera’s group sent samples to French specialist Michel Raynal. The center contacted him and his initial impression was that it is a giant octopus, Cabrera told MSNBC.com.
    A review of literature found only one other giant octopus of a similar shape and size, Cabrera said, a specimen found on a Florida beach in 1896.
    Cabrera noted the Chilean specimen is bigger than what was found in 1896, measuring about 40 feet long, 18 feet wide, and three feet high at its highest point.

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 — A ghostly, 23-foot-long creature glides through the deep sea, its gossamer fins billowing against the black water. Its arms, more than half its total length, trail behind like delicate threads. The squid doesn’t react right away to the submarine’s approach, but it shoots away into the dark once the sub gets too close. Researchers have captured scenes like this on videotape eight times, in four different oceans, within recent years. That’s quite a lot of exposure for an animal that no one has reported seeing before.
