A fisherman managed to haul an eight ft-long squid and presented it to stunned villagers who suspect there may be more like it out there، daily mail reported.

The mammoth marine creature was hauled ashore on Saturday morning in the remote island region of Tawi-tawi، Philippines.

Shocked residents crowded around the bright white squid - measuring one and a half ft wide - as it lay on the ground in the coastal village. 

A tape measured stretched out over the creature shows it to be just over 8ft long - the biggest the region has ever seen.

Harold Eduardo Curtis، a fisherman on the island who saw the squid، said: 'I know the fisherman who caught this squid. It was hard for him to bring it in because of the weight.

'The beautiful feature of this squid was how clean it was، how bright and white. It was a very healthy squid and still young. The meat will taste very good.

'This is the biggest I have ever seen caught here. it looks like it is from a family of large squid، so there will be more out in the ocean of this size and maybe even bigger.'
