A rare colossal squid was dissected in New Zealand — and you can watch it on YouTube

Last summer in the southern hemisphere, a fishing vessel in the Antarctic Ocean pulled up a rare creature — a 770-pound colossal squid.

Scientists in New Zealand froze it to preserve it and just defrosted and dissected it.
