Remnants of Large Squid Found by Amigos Del Mar Dive Shop - The crew of Amigos Del Mar Dive Shop seems to always have the best of luck when it comes to new discoveries while they are out at sea during their daily tours. A while back they discovered a prehistoric-looking creature that looked like a cross between an eel and a large-mouthed fish, clearly a deep sea dwelling creature. Earlier this week, they found remnants of a very large squid!
“It’s a giant squid!” remarked many residents when they saw this elongated body part. The crew of Amigos Del Mar made the discovery once again during one of their trips to the Great Blue Hole of Belize. They picked up this dead creature out of the water and were startled by its size.
“Who knows what creatures live in those unknown depths,” commented another island resident. Clearly the creature was not a giant squid, but it was a fairly large (larger than normal) squid that had all its other appendages missing; more than likely eaten by another sea creature.
Nevertheless, surprises like these make for great stories when looking back at your adventures in Belize.
