This is just cool.
In New Zealand they are studying a huge squid. They think it is the world's largest specimen. It has very large eyes. According to a scientists, "This is the largest eye ever recorded in history and studied... It has a huge lens the size of an orange and captures an awful lot of light in the dark depths in which it hunts."
CNN has coverage here. There is also a somewhat graphic video of the squid specimen.
So next time you see someone who looks like they have big eyes, think about this squid that eyes eyes bigger than a person's head!

11 inches around with lenses the size of oranges. Imagining that actually gives me the heebie-jeebies.
