The giant squid has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom. Their eyes can be up to 10 inches across–the size of a dinner plate! Most likely, they use these huge light gathering eyes to search the dark depths of the ocean for the hulking shape of their main predator, the sperm whale. A recent study suggests the giant squid can detect a moving sperm whale from almost 400 feet away.

Doesn’t that picture make you want to go give it a big giant kiss?
