Beachgoers near the city of Cantabria, Spain got a major shock when they came across the nearly-intact remains of a giant squid, which had washed ashore earlier this week.

According to a GrindTV, the 30-foot, 400-pound sea monster was taken to the town's museum for preservation and further study. It was photographed by Enrique Talledo, who has documented a wide variety of marine life. He told the site that the squid was found almost completely intact... all the way down to its enormous eyeballs, which are roughly ten inches in diameter.

Since these deep-sea creatures are incredibly hard to find above depths of 1000 feet, the discovery of an intact specimen is extremely rare – the last reported capture of a squid this size was in Japan in 2006 – and very few museums have giant squids on display.
