National Geographic : 1941 Mar
390 The National Geographic Magazine Coming up on the Hooks, the Giant Squid is a Fearsome Thing Because the ocean off Peru is highly phosphorescent, the creature is visible as it shoots through the water, leaving a long meteorlike trail. The flashlight for this night picture blots out the luminescence. Baleful the Eye and Vicious the Beak of the Gaffed Squid With its ten tentacles wrapped around the pole, the monster grips tight and snaps big chunks out of the wood. One of its fellows (faintly visible lower right), darting tail first, is coming up to take a bite out of the captive. They are extremely cannibalistic (page 386).
