The carcass of a giant squid was found on Farewell Spit this morning by Farewell Spit Eco Tours whilst on their way to the Lighthouse on the end of the Spit.
 
Paddy Gillooly Farewell Spit Eco Tours says the animal was about 4.2m long and washed up at the high tide mark approx 6 km along the ocean side of the Spit.
 
Gillooly says this is not the first time a giant squid has been washed up here - the last one was 2004 and there have been about half a dozen in the last 20 years.
