A giant squid, over two metres long, has reportedly washed up on a beach in New Zealand.
The Kaikoura Marine Centre and Aquarium uploaded pictures of the specimen to Facebook on Thursday.
The squid is said to have been found by local resident Bruce Bennett while he was walking his dog at South Bay in Kaikoura.
The squid, which reportedly has tentacles five metres long, was moved to the aquarium where it was frozen, the Facebook post said.
BuzzFeed has reached out to the aquarium and Lewis to try to get some more information on the find.
