(ORDO NEWS) — A giant squid about 3 meters long was discovered on the beach on April 20, which local authorities say is a rare occurrence.
Around 10 a.m., a resident of a nearby area spotted a squid on Ugu Beach in Obama, Fukui Prefecture, on the coast of the Sea of Japan.
According to the Obama municipality, the squid was still alive when it was discovered. It is unusual for a giant squid to wash ashore alive, officials say.
The deep sea creature will be delivered to the Echizen Matsushima Aquarium in Sakai Prefecture City.
