NBC -- A 25-foot giant squid was found in northern California.
The remains of this rare behemoth were discovered at Santa Cruz Harbor.
Biologists examining the carcass said it had tentacles as thick as a human leg.
The national oceanic and atmospheric administration says only a handful have ever been found in California waters.
The squid was taken to a lab for a necropsy.
Researchers say giant squid can grow upward of fifty and sixty feet, and weigh up to a ton.
